Former UFC Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has reportedly expressed interest in playing the intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran in a film based on Nintendo’s “Metroid” franchise.
Speaking with Gamespot, the fighter and “Furious 7” actress says:
“I’ve always wanted to be Samus. That would be badass. I love how people found out later that it was a hot chick on the inside. And then most of the day you’re in a suit, so you can just hang out and eat donuts and be the star of Metroid. I hope they make a movie out of that.”
Rousey is also set to star in a film adaptation of her autobiography “My Fight/Your Fight” and an upcoming remake of the 1989 Patrick Swayze-led classic “Road House”.
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto revealed last year they were reconsidering their stance on feature adaptations after a two-decade long blackout following 1993’s “Super Mario Bros.”
