The Daily Wire Fast-Tracks New Gina Carano Western Thriller "TERROR ON THE PRAIRIE"


The Daily Wire Fast-Tracks New Western Thriller Starring Gina Carano

‘Terror on the Prairie’ will be released in the spring of 2022


NASHVILLE – October 12, 2021 – The Daily Wire announced today it has updated its 2021-22 production schedule as part of the company’s expanding slate of feature films. Originally, The Daily Wire planned to release White Knuckle in the first quarter of next year; however, the conservative media company has decided to reschedule the action film’s release and fast-track production on a new western thriller, Terror on the Prairie, starring and produced by former Disney Mandalorian actress Gina Carano.

“With the precariousness of the current Hollywood landscape and the remarkable overreach by its ruling class, we made the tough, but prudent choice to ride further out into the wild west to make movies on our own terms. The Daily Wire has given Gina and our team all the support any producers could ask for. Now, we must go make them proud by producing something that is truly great,” said producer Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk and Run Hide Fight).

Directed by Michael Polish (Northfork and The Astronaut Farmer), Terror on the Prairie features a pioneering family that fights back against a gang of vicious outlaws that is terrorizing them on their newly built farm in the great plains of Montana. Terror on the Prairie will be released in the spring of 2022 and will be available for streaming on exclusively to Daily Wire members.

“Returning to my home state of Montana to direct a western for Dallas and Amanda, a rare of breed of producers who I truly respect, had tremendous appeal,” said Polish.

Co-starring in the film alongside Carano are Nick Searcy (The Shape of Water and Justified); MMA star Cowboy Cerrone; stand-up comedian Tyler Fischer; Heath Freeman (Skateland); Samaire Armstrong (The O.C.); Travis Mills (Counting Bullets); Matthias Hues (I Come in Peace); Rhys Becker; Izzy Marshall, Jeremy Gauna; and Thomas White Eagle.

Sonnier is producing Terror on the Prairie along with Amanda Presmyk under their banner Bonfire Legend. This is The Daily Wire’s third collaboration with Bonfire. Terror on the Prairie was written by newcomer Josiah Nelson and cast by David Guglielmo (The Standoff at Sparrow Creek).

Nelson was originally a client of Sonnier’s former management firm Caliber Media a decade ago, and the two reconnected at just the right time. Nelson sent the Terror script to Sonnier and Carano just days before they enthusiastically greenlit the movie with The Daily Wire’s co-CEO Jeremy Boreing.

Boreing, along with his Daily Wire co-founders Ben Shapiro and Caleb Robinson will executive produce, alongside Nicolas Chartier and Jonathan Deckter of Los Angeles-based Voltage Pictures, who will also handle foreign sales of the film. Mills and Danielle Cox also executive produce.

Earlier this year, The Daily Wire announced its foray into entertainment with the acquisition of Kyle Rankin’s Run Hide Fight from Bonfire Legend. The action-packed hit drew 300,000 viewers during its live premiere in January.   

Additional details about Terror on the Prairie will be shared in the coming weeks.

Carano is repped by manager Scott Karp and attorney Eric Galen. Polish is repped by APA, Management Production Entertainment, and attorney Alex Kohner. Searcy is repped by APA and LINK Entertainment. Cerrone is repped by Gersh. Freeman is repped by Rafterman Media. Hues is repped by Atomik Content. Becker is repped by Ivy Artists Management. Marshall is repped by 111 Media.



Co-founded by Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire is one of America’s fastest growing conservative media companies for breaking news, investigative reporting, podcasts, in-depth analysis, and entertainment for a reason: because we believe in what we do. We believe in our country, in the value of truth and the freedom to speak it, and in the right to challenge tyranny wherever we see it.
