Anyone reading this site probably knows by now that I am a HUGE UFC fan and an equally HUGE Ronda Rousey fan. So, when I hear that she is going to be starring in a new action movie with plans to potentially make it into a franchise I mark out.
Variety reports that not only is Ronda Rousey lined up to have a role in the Entourage movie but she is also set to star in The Athena Project based on Brad Thor’s best selling novel by the same name.
The story follows a top secret, all-female Delta Force counterterrorism team code named the Athena Project that is sent in to hunt and kill a master terrorist after a bombing in Rome kills 20 Americans. Trouble ensues once the team realizes there’s more at play than a simple bombing.
Sounds pretty cool to me.
