On the heels of Sylvester Stallone’s announcement that Rousey would join the cast of Expendables 3, Hollywood trade publication Variety reports that the champ is in heavy negotiations to follow-up Expendables 3 with a role in Fast & Furious 7.
If the deal gets finalized, Rousey would line up alongside Fast & Furious stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for the movie’s seventh iteration. The most recent edition of the franchise, Fast & Furious 6, has been wildly successful, racking up box office receipts of more than $770 million worldwide.
Shooting for both Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7 would take place this fall and wrap before Rousey’s fight camp for her rematch with Miesha Tate at UFC 168 on Dec. 28. Rousey would also continue to train while on-location for both films.
Rousey and Tate coach opposite each other on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate, the eighteenth season of the reality series. The TUF 18 premiere is set for Sept. 4 on the new Fox Sports 1 network, which launches next week.
