After destroying Bethe Correia in 34 seconds Saturday night, UFC champion Ronda Rousey is shifting her focus to her newest movie project – her own life story.
According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to Rousey’s New York Times bestselling autobiography “My Fight/Your Fight”.
The best part for fans? Rousey is going to star in the movie.
“It’s a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the bigscreen,” Producer Mary Parent said.
“My Fight/Your Fight” was written by Rousey with her sister, Maria Burns Ortiz,and is the inspirational story of Rousey overcoming adversity on her path to championship glory and celebrity.
The book was published in spring by Regan Arts and was an immediate New York Times bestseller.
Rousey, who had a breakout acting role in “Expendables 3”, has made it clear to all that she does not discuss business or focus on movies when training. With one more fight expected before the end of the year and a commitment for a role in the Peter Berg film “Mile 22” in January, no date has been set for production to begin.
