Is there anything Ronda Rousey can’t do? Well, after watching her performance in Furious 7, I would say the one thing she can’t do is act. But according to a new report from Variety, the 28-year-old professional kicker of booty will star in the film adaptation of her autobiography My Fight/Your Fight.
Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to the best-selling book. Matt Bomback is on board to adapt the book and Mary Parent will reportedly produce.
“It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the big screen.” Parent said in a statement. And Rousey also seemed to be excited about the project. She confirmed the news on her Instagram account…
“Can’t wait to work with Paramount, the talented Mark Bomback and Mary Parent! When it’s time to make this, I promise to make it special.”
When will it be time to make the movie? No one knows. Ronda might be scheduled for one more huge fight later this year, and then she’s expected to work on Mark Wahlberg’s upcoming movie, Mile 22, in January of 2016.
It’s going to be an interesting ride. You’ll notice how Ronda said, “When it’s time to make this, I promise to make it special.” And you know what? I believe her. She has probably been working on her acting skills, and we all know what happens when she works hard at something. She becomes addicted to it and doesn’t stop until she is the best.
Hopefully this movie is just as successful as Eminem’s 8 Mile.
