Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey to Star in ‘Do Nothing Bitches’ for Universal

Universal Pictures has acquired the Paula Pell pitch “Do Nothing Bitches” with Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey attached to star.

Story follows wealthy pampered wives who get a rude awakening at a camp where Rousey plays the no-nonsense instructor.

Pell, who most recently penned the Universal comedy “Sisters,” which also starred Tina Fey, will pen the script. Fey will produce “Do Nothing Bitches” via her Little Stranger Productions banner along with Pell, and Little Stranger’s Eric Gurian will executive produce. EVP Production Erik Baiers will oversee for the studio.

Though “Star Wars” demolished almost every film in its way during the holiday season, “Sisters” worked as solid counter-programing, bringing in $77 million at the domestic box office so far. Fey can be seen next in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” which bows in March, opposite Margot Robbie.

While Rousey has become a global brand through her UFC career, she has slowly begun to build a strong film slate. She is set to star in a “Road House” remake for MGM, which starts filming in April. She is also developing “Mile 22” with Pete Berg as well as her biopic “My Fight/Your Fight” with Paramount.

Fey is repped by WME and 3 Arts. Rousey is repped by WME and attorney Dave Feldman.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
