Fighter Ronda Rousey to play herself in biopic

Los Angeles, Aug 4 (IANS) American mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey will play herself on the big screen in an upcoming biopic. Paramount Pictures has secured the rights to her bestselling autobiography “My Fight/Your Fight”.

Mark Bomback is roped in to adapt the book, while Mary Parent is producing the project along with Rousey, with Bomback serving as executive producer, reports variety.com.

“It’s a real honour to be a part of bringing Ronda’s incredible story to the big screen,” 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 film “Mile 22″ in January.

She has earlier appeared on screen in films like “The Expendables 3,” “Furious 7” and “Entourage”, in which she also appeared as herself.
