As James Wan’s Fast & Furious 7 gears up for production, Variety is reporting that mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey is in talks for a supporting role. She’d join Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Jason Statham along with a returning ensemble cast that has yet to be fully confirmed.
Continuing from the cliffhanger tease at the end of Furious Six, Fast & Furious 7 is said to return the action to Los Angeles, although the production is eyeing an Atlanta shoot.
Rousey recently made headlines when she signed on to join the cast of the upcoming The Expendables 3. The first American woman to have ever taken home an Olympic medal for Judo, Rousey scored a bronze in the 2008 summer games in Beijing.
Fast & Furious 7 is slated to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.
