Ronda Rousey: ‘UFC fighter’ Will Play Patrick Swayze’s Bouncer Role in a Road House Remake

Ronda Rousey UFC fighter Will Play Patrick Swayze's Bouncer Role in a Road House Remake

Ronda Rousey is set to star in the Road House remake, taking over the role that Patrick Swayze made famous in the original 1989 film.

According to Variety, production on the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film is set to begin in 2016 and producers are in the process of interviewing screenwriters.

Rousey is scheduled to headline UFC 193 against Holly Holm on Nov. 14 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia in front of a potential crowd of 70,000-plus. After that event it’s unclear when Rousey’s next fight might take place, though the mixed marital arts superstar has never been one to take extended breaks from competition.

“Production of the movie will be dictated, as always, by her fight schedule,” Rousey’s agent Brand Slater told MMAFighting. “That’s how we always do it and that will be the case here.”

Rousey will be playing the role made famous by the late Patrick Swayze. One of the taglines for the original movie, which is considered a cult classic, was “A tough bouncer is hired to tame a dirty bar.”

In addition to being the most dominant fighter currently in women’s MMA, the 28-year-old is compiling quite the filmography. She has appeared in The Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage and will play herself in a film adaptation of her autobiography, “My Fight/Your Fight,” which hit bookstores earlier this year.
