Danny Trejo and Stephen Lang Join In The Blood

Danny Trejo (Machete) and Stephen Lang (Avatar) are in negotiations to join Gina Carano (Haywire) in a new action thriller called In the Blood. The movie is being directed by John Stockwell from a script witten by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston and then polished by Sean Finnegan and Gregg Parker.
