Ronda Rousey’s acting resume includes Expendables 3, Entourage, and Furious 7. She will add the Mark Wahlberg film Mile 22 to her resume in 2016 and is set to star in the remake of Roadhouse. Variety is reporting that director Nick Cassavetes has signed on to direct and write the Roadhouse remake for MGM.
“I was pursuing Road House for like two years. I really don’t think that any other man could be [Patrick Swayze]. I think that it’s a wise angle to take to kind of do a little gender flip of the role,” said Rousey.
Apparently Rousey is trying to build her acting resume so she can land the lead role of Carol Danvers in the Marvel film Captain Marvel according to Entertainment Tonight.
“I’m really looking forward to doing my first starring role opposite Mark Wahlberg. Hopefully by the time Captain Marvel comes around, I will have enough experience and skills in the field for them to really seriously consider me,” said Rousey.
Captain Marvel is scheduled for release on March 8, 2019.
