Thor told TheBlaze he was introduced to Rousey over the phone while she was shooting “The Expendables 3” in Europe. Not only did the UFC fighter absolutely love the book, she also immediately clicked with Thor.
“She finished the book in two days and we talked for like an hour,” Thor said. “The studio said if Ronda and I clicked, they were positive the film project would be phenomenal. And we more than clicked.”
The author had nothing but kind words to say about Rousey, calling her “so smart, so grounded and so cool.” He also said it doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous. Bottom line, she’s exactly the kind of woman the real-life Delta Force unit would attempt to recruit.
Due to her combination of stunning good looks and rare physical abilities, Thor said Rousey is the perfect person to star in “The Athena Project.” In fact, he went a little further than that.
“This is going to be Ronda Rousey’s Jason Bourne,” Thor told TheBlaze. “Matt Damon can’t dream of doing the things on-screen that Rousey can do in real life. Ronda Rousey could beat Matt Damon’s ass and Jason Bourne’s ass — at the same time.”
“We have never seen a chick kick ass like this,” he continued. “This is going to make ‘Tomb Raider’ look like a Disney movie.”
This guy sounds like an absolute tool. No wonder he likes Rousey so much
I thought Ronda killed all of her potential marketability and exposure during TUF 18 and by not shaking Miesha's hand???
I believe these new movie roles were already a done deal before the hand shaking incident. The fall out is probably going to be a low public turn out once these movies hit the theaters because those who hate her certainly aren't going to pay to see her in movies. But she'll probably make decent money from the movies anyway.
