The 28-year-old mixed martial artist-turned-actress is set to step into the role Patrick Swayze made famous in the 80s cult classic, in which he played a bouncer in a bar.

Rousey recently spoke to Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi, to ask for her blessing and is now eager to press on with the movie, with production set to begin in 2016, Variety reports.

The film will mark Rousey’s biggest movie role to date, and will further her reputation as one of the coming forces in Hollywood.

Her casting comes shortly after she admitted she’d love to star as Captain Marvel.

Rousey said she dreams of starring in her own movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and identified Captain Marvel as her character of choice.

Asked during a Reddit Q&A which superhero she’d most like to play, the blonde beauty replied: “A lot of the good ones have been taken, but I’d like to vie for Miss Marvel.”

And prior to her most-recent victory over UFC rival Bethe Correia, Rousey explained how her burgeoning movie career would work around her mixed martial arts commitments.

She said: “Here’s pretty much the plan. I’m going to beat up Bethe, then I’m going to take a couple of weeks to rest, and then I’m going to go beat up Miesha [Tate], and then I’m going to go to like Thailand or wherever we decide to film (‘Mile 22’) and prep for like a month, and then start filming for like eight to 10 weeks, and then go beat up the next chick.

“That’s pretty much my plan.”
