Ronda Rousey will enter the world of screenwriting. A report on Thursday from Variety indicates that the decorated former fighter and WWE superstar will be the screenwriter for a biopic on her that will air on Netflix.

Deadline reports that Rousey will “adapt the script” to her two memoirs for a biopic that will air on the popular streaming service.

“Rousey has closed a deal to adapt the script of her own biopic at Netflix that would be based on both her memoirs, My Fight/Your Fight and Our Fight,” Deadline wrote.

The publication stressed at this time that the deal isn’t closed, but that Chernin Entertainment will likely produce the biopic.

This is not the first time that a Rousey biopic has been floated. In 2015, one was set to be produced based on her first memoir. However, trouble arose in the form of rights agreements, so nothing was ever able to come to fruition.

It’s an interesting time to be Rousey at this point. She’s nearly a year removed from her exit from WWE. Her second run wasn’t quite as spirited as their first whack at it. We’re very far deviated from her days as a dominant UFC champion. Former commentator Jimmy Smith recently lashed out at her for how she treated people behind the scenes.

Rousey’s lived a fascinating life in some ways, so it will be interesting to see what this biopic could—or couldn’t—deliver.
