It was a busy 2013 for Ronda Rousey as she fought two times and also filmed two movies. 2014 looks like another busy year for the UFC women’s bantamweight champion.
Variety.com is reporting that Rousey has signed with Warner Brothers for lead roles in the “Entourage” movie and “Athena Project”, which is a New York Times bestselling book by author Brad Thor.
Rousey will begin shooting the “Entourage” movie in the middle of March and “Athena Project” still doesn’t have a writer for the movie, so it is not known when the movie will begin to film.
“Athena Project” follows a top secret, all-female Delta Force counterterrorism team code named the Athena Project that is sent in to hunt and kill a master terrorist after a bombing in Rome kills 20 Americans. Trouble ensues once the team realizes there’s more at play than a simple bombing.
Rousey’s next fight takes place at UFC 170 in almost two weeks on February 22 as she defend her title against Sara McMann in the main event of the show. It is not known at this time if Rousey will fight in between movies.
