Ronda Rousey’s Upcoming Movies in 2017
#1. Road House
Ronda Rousey has only acted in supporting roles in the films we have seen her in. This all might change soon, as Rousey has signed on to star in the remake of the 1983 action thriller Road House. She is not only going to reprise, but will also genderbend the role made famous by Patrick Swayze, Dalton. It was announced in 2015 that Nick Cassavetes will be writing and directing the film. At this time, nobody else is attached to Road House, but it is possible that Rousey will also produce the film.
Speculation of whether or not Road House will be made is in the air, as production for Ronda Rousey’s upcoming movie for 2017 was pushed back multiple times. It has been reported that filming was pushed to May of this year to allow Cassavettes to finish writing the script.
#2. Do Nothing Bitches
This will be the first time that we will see Ronda Rousey do more than showcase her fighting skills on screen. News is circulating around Hollywood that Rousey and Tina Fey are signed on to the comedy, Do Nothing Bitches. Although the story line of the movie is unknown, sources claim that the movie is about female-empowerment. Do Nothing Bitches is about pampered and wealthy wives who have to get down to work at camp, with their tough instructor played by Rousey. The title was inspired by Rousey’s coined phrase, and Tina Fey is said be producing this movie under her Little Strangers banner. No release date of other information on the film has been released, as it is still in-development.
