Ronda Rousey, the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, continues to extend her brand into Hollywood and has scored a role in an upcoming film alongside Tina Fey. The title, Do Nothing Bitches, comes from a pre-fight interview Ronda Rousey did back in August, when she explained how she wasn’t a “do nothing bitch.”

“I have this one term for the kind of woman that my mother raised me to not be. I call it a ‘do-nothing b–ch.’ Or, I call it a ‘DNB’ a lot of the time,” Rousey said at the time.
“That’s why I think it’s hilarious if people say that my body looks masculine, or something like that. I’m just like, ‘Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f—ing millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine.’ I think it’s femininely badass as f–k, because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose. Because, I’m not a do-nothing b–ch,” Ronda Rousey added.
Eventually filing a trademark for the phrase, Rousey will get paid for the film’s use of it as the title, as well as for her role.
Deadline reports the film is about “wealthy pampered wives who get a rude awakening at a camp where Rousey plays the no-nonsense instructor.”

In addition to Do Nothing Bitches, Ronda Rousey is also working on a biopic about her life. My Fight/Your Fight is currently in development.
Ronda Rousey, in fact, has so many acting gigs at the moment, she has had to put her return to fighting on hold.
