    Fast & Furious 7 is adding UFC champion Ronda Rousey to its star-studded cast!

    The 26-year-old fighter is currently in negotiations to join the franchise's upcoming film, the flick's movie studio confirms to E! News.

    Rousey would play a supporting role that would showcase her UFC skills. The film will begin shooting next month in Atlanta.

    PICS: Recast roles

    Fast & Furious stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will all return for the franchise's seventh film. Fast & Furious 7 will be directed by James Wan.

    Rousey will follow in the footsteps of MMA fighter Gina Carano, who nabbed herself a role in Fast & Furious 6.

    Before Fast & Furious 7, Rousey, who is the first and current UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, will film The Expendables 3, which stars Sylvester Stallone, Jackie Chan, Milla Jovovich, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes and newbie Harrison Ford (but not Bruce Willis!).
