A new film title “Do Nothing Bitches” has been acquired by Universal Pictures that is set to star Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey.
The logline is being kept under wraps but I hear it is a female-empowerment tale dealing with wealthy pampered wives who get a rude awakening at a camp where Rousey plays the no-nonsense instructor. You can get a sense of her attitude about this, as the concept for the film originated from an interview Rousey gave this summer about female self-worth that has generated more than 3 million hits on YouTube. She sold 57,000 T-shirts with the phrase.
The film has been inspired by this interview by Ronda Rousey:
This reminds me of the move “Heavyweights” where Ben Stiller stars as the fitness-crazed camp counselor. With Tina Fey this movie will be a commercial success and Rousey will reach an entirely different audience than the ones she has thus far.
It’s also important to point out that Rousey is a featured actor in the film. Unlike her cameos in “Fast7″ and “Entourage: How many cameos can we put in one movie?” Rousey will be in a new role that might help usher her away from fighting in the UFC and towards an acting career.
