Ronda Rousey has been very much in the limelight recently, after she knocked out her opponent Bethe Correia in 34 seconds and now she is making moves for her film career.
This film is going to be something very close to Ronda’s heart, as Paramount Pictures have acquired the rights to Ronda’s autobiography My Fight/Your Fight, where Ronda will be playing herself.
Mark Bomback, who has written such things as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Total Recall, is on board to adapt the book. Mary Parent, who produced films such as Pacific Rim, is producing alongside Rousey herself.
Mary seems pretty hyped for the film, as she went on record saying: “It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the bigscreen.”
The book the film is based from was written by Rousey and her sister Maria Burns Ortiz, and is celebrating the accomplishments of Rousey, who has undoubtedly faced some challenges on her path to glory.
Unfortunately, we don’t have even a rough estimate as to when the film will even start production, as Mark has only just started adapting the book for film. It’s not exactly every day that someone will star in their own biopic, but Rousey has already appeared in several films such as Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage.
