Though she remains the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, undefeated Ronda Rousey is continuing her budding film career. According to Brent Brookhouse of MMA Junkie, will next star in “Mile 22” with Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg.
The Hollywood Reporter describes the plot of the film (to be directed by Peter Berg) as “a CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who is tasked with transporting a compromised informant from the center of the city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.”
Just how Rousey fits into the story remains to be seen, but should still be worth a watch. The MMA star has already appeared in “The Expendables 3,” “Furious Seven,” and “Entourage,” so it is now obvious that she is serious about pursuing a movie career. She certainly has the mixed martial arts skills to be an excellent action star, and this film with Wahlberg will only help build her resume.
I don’t know about the rest of you faithful readers, but I can’t wait for this movie to come out!
