That didn’t take long for Ronda Rousey to get her first movie role.
Action movie star Sylvester Stallone confirmed on Twitter last night that Ronda Rousey will be appearing in the third installment of “The Expendables”.
Stallone didn’t reveal what the role Rousey will have in the movie. The movie is currently in pre-production with an expected release date of August 15,2014.

The first two installments of the movie did very well as the first movie raked in more than $100 million, while the sequel drew around $85 million.
It was rumored earlier this year that Rousey would have a role in “Hunger Game 2”, but that never came to fruition. This will be Rousey’s first venture into acting.
Ronda Rousey is currently scheduled to defend her UFC women’s bantamweight championship against Miesha Tate in the co-main event of UFC 168 on December 28.
