It's happening, Rousey-ception is upon us. Ronda Rousey is now set to star in a movie about Ronda Rousey, based on a book about Ronda Rousey, co-written by Ronda Rousey. If she records the soundtrack and the audio book for it too, then her multimedia domination will just about be complete.

Fresh off her dusting of yet another challenger in one-sided fashion it looks like Rousey has another major movie deal on the table. Variety reports that Rousey will be the star of the film version of 'MyFight/YourFight', her recently released autobiography, co-written with her sister. The book will be adapted by Mark Bomback who wrote Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Wolverine, Live Free or Die Hard, and the Total Recall remake.

Producer Mary Parent told Variety that, "It's a real honor to be a part of bringing Ronda's incredible story to the big screen."

Rousey has a lot on her plate before filming can begin however. Shes got her trilogy fight with Miesha Tate in front of her, after which she'll be filming Peter Berg's "Mile 22" co-starring Mark Wahlberg and Iko Uwais. On top of all this are reports that Rousey is also attatched to Warner Bros. "The Athena Project," so it sounds like fans can expect to be seeing a lot more of the UFC bantamweight champion on the big screen in the near future.
