'Fast and Furious 7' to Star UFC Champion Ronda Rousey

The mixed martial artist is in negotiations to land another big-screen role after securing a spot in 'The Expendables 3'.

AceShowbiz - Another female fighter is looking for a spot in "Fast and Furious" film series. After Gina Carano landed a role in "Fast and Furious 6", UFC champion Ronda Rousey is eyeing the follow-up to the 2013 blockbuster as her potential starring vehicle. The Wrap learns that she is currently in talks to discuss the chance.

If the deal is sealed, the next chapter in the Universal Studios franchise will be Rousey's second movie after Sylvester Stallone's upcoming "The Expendables 3". The 26-year-old newcomer is expected to take on a minor supporting role which requires her to showcase her fighting skills.

"Fast and Furious 7" will be directed by James Wan, whose latest horror flick "The Conjuring" has performed well at the box office. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson are some of many familiar faces who will reprise their roles in the next sequel.

"Saw" director Wan will direct from a script by Chris Morgan. Neal Moritz serves as producer. Production will be kicked off this fall in Atlanta, though the movie, which is the seventh installment in the series, will be set in Los Angeles where the first chapter took place.
