#RondaRousey To Play Herself In Upcoming Biopic

Variety is reporting UFC fighter Ronda Rousey is making moves for her film career, and this latest project hits close to home.

Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to Rousey’s New York Times bestselling autobiography “My Fight/Your Fight,” with Rousey playing herself.

Mark Bomback on board to adapt the book, while Mary Parent is producing along with Rousey, with Bomback serving as exec producer.

“It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the bigscreen,” Parent said.

Written by Rousey with her sister Maria Burns Ortiz, “My Fight/Your Fight” is an inspirational story celebrating the accomplishments of Rousey, who faced extraordinary challenges on her path to glory. The book was published in spring by Regan Arts.

No date has been set yet on when the project will go into production as Bomback has just begun adapting the book. Rousey is expected to fight one more time before the end of the year and will then shoot the Pete Berg-directed action pic “Mile 22″ in January.

It’s not very often that a notable individual stars in her own biopic, but Rousey is one of those rare cases of an athlete who has seamlessly transitioned from fighting in the Octagon to appearing on screen in such films as “The Expendables 3,” “Furious 7″ and most recently, “Entourage,” in which she also appeared as herself.

From appearing in films and penning New York Times bestsellers to endorsement deals with Reebok, Buffalo Jeans and DraftKings, Rousey’s brand outside the ring has continued to expand over the past few years.

Insiders say that Rousey showed interest in appearing in the film and wanted to be sure Paramount was on board as soon as the rights to the book were put on the market. Paramount execs were impressed by her ability to balance a film career while staying in top fighting shape.

Ever since breaking out in “Expendables 3,” Rousey has made it clear that she does not discuss outside business while training. With the fight behind her, she can now develop the project with Bomback in a way she feels will paint the best portrait of her life.

Bomback’s recent credits include “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Wolverine.” He most recently penned “War of the Planet of the Apes,” due out in 2017. Prior to that, he wrote “Unstoppable.”
