UFC fighter Ronda Rousey to star in her own biopic
UFC fighter Ronda Rousey is to star in a biopic based on her own life.
Rousey, who recently filmed appearances in Fast 7 and Entourage, released her autobiography My Fight/Your Fight earlier this year and Paramount have now bought the rights with the intention of filming the story with Rousey herself starring.
According to Deadline, writer Mark Bomback, the man who helped pen the likes of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and Insurgent, is on board to adapt the book, while Mary Parent is producing along with Rousey herself.
The movie won't shoot for a while as Bomback has only just begun work and Rousey herself has a busy schedule, which includes at least one more fight before the end of 2015 and an appearance in Friday Night Lights' director Peter Berg's new thriller Mile 22.
