Ronda Rousey continues to get more opportunities in Hollywood.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion is expected to appear in the upcoming action movie “Mile 22.” The film will be directed by Peter Berg and stars Mark Walhberg as “a CIA agent stationed in Indonesia who is asked with transporting a compromised informant from the center of the city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.
“While en route, they must battle corrupt police, criminal overlords and heavily armed locals, all hell-bent on taking them out before they reach their plane,” according to the report. A release date for “Mile 22” was not mentioned.
Rousey most recently made a cameo in “Entourage,” which was based on the popular HBO series produced by Wahlberg. She has also had roles in action blockbusters “Furious 7” and “Expendables 3.”
The Olympic judoka is scheduled to defend her title against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 1. She last appeared at UFC 184 on Feb. 28, where she submitted Cat Zingano with an armbar in 14 seconds.
