Ronda Rousey To Star In Movie About Her Life
Ronda Rousey is everywhere these days, and people are about to get even more familiar with her... via a movie about her life.
According to Variety, the 28-year-old MMA superstar is slated to star in a Paramount Pictures film based on her autobiography.
The studio has secured the rights to Rousey's New York Times bestselling autobiography, entitled My Fight/Your Fight, with the fighter playing herself.
Mark Bomback has been tapped to adapt the book, while Mary Parent is producing along with Rousey, with Bomback serving as exec producer.
Rousey (12-0) is fresh off a 34-second knockout of Bethe Correia at UFC 190 over the weekend in Rio de Janeiro. She is also expected to make her seventh title defense against Miesha Tate later this year, before starting work on a Peter Berg-directed film titled Mile 22.
This isn't her first job in Hollywood. She's also made appearances in Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage.
