UFC Champion Ronda Rousey is set to star in a biopic based on her own life story.
The upcoming film will be based off of the Furious 7 star’s autobiography, “My Fight/Your Fight”. If we are being honest, Rousey is the only actress that could really capture the essence of the character perfectly. I mean, who else could play Rousey better than Rousey?
Since Rousey is familiar with the acting world due to her previous smaller parts, this role gives her the opportunity to catapult her acting career further. In an effort to make this project a reality, screenwriter Mark Bomback will work to adapt the film alongside Mary Parent as the producer. Additionally, Paramount will help to launch the film after securing the rights to the bestselling autobiography.
Strangely this isn’t the first time the wrestler will be portraying herself on the big screen. Fans will recognize Rousey as Turtle’s love interest in the Entourage movie released earlier this summer.
At this time, details regarding casting and a release date for the untitled project are to be determined. What are your thoughts on Ronda Rousey portraying herself in the depiction of her autobiography? Leave your comments below!
