UFC champion Ronda Rousey is set to go into movies. The best female fighter of all time is due to hit Tinseltown with production starting on a remake of the ’80s classic Road House, in 2016. The original starred Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze as Dalton, a tough guy bouncer hired to clean up one of the rowdiest, roughest bars in all of Missouri, The Double Deuce. The new one will see Rousey roundhouse kicking half the dudes in the bar. And we can’t wait!
Road House has cult status now, but a Rousey-starring version might just be box office gold. Ronda’s appeared in a few movies already including Furious 7, The Expendables 3 and the Entourage picture, but this would be her first starrer.
Here’s what she said about the plans on her Twitter account:
