Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey Tag-Team New Comedy DO NOTHING BITCHES

A famed and celebrated comedienne and a nearly-undefeated female mixed martial artist are teaming up to star in a comedy movie together. You could have paid me money and I still wouldn’t have guessed that Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey would ever be in the same zip code much less the same film, but this is the world in which we live today, folks. The 30 Rock creator/star and the woman who knocked more people out quicker than you’d imagine (and who appeared in Furious 7) will appear together in a new comedy called Do Nothing Bitches. (Amy Poehler and Gina Carano, by the way, would be a totally believable team-up.)

The project is the work of writer Paula Pell, the former Saturday Night Live writer who most recently penned the Fey and Poehler comedy Sisters which, you probably didn’t realize, came out the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. No official word about the plot, though some are saying it has to do with a group of bored, privileged housewives who get their butts whipped into shape by a no-nonsense bootcamp instructor. Take a wild guess as to which of these actresses will fill which role.

“Do Nothing Bitches” is a phrase made famous by Rousey last year when discussing a certain type of woman her mother raised her not to be. A video interview of hers went viral and the phrase ended up on t-shirts the world over.

You get it.

No other news on the movie Do Nothing Bitches is available at this point, but how much do you want to bet that title will get changed before the movie comes out?

Let us know your thoughts on the great Fey-Rousey smackdown of 2016 in the comments below!
