No, Tina Fey and Ronda Rousey haven’t decided to call it a day and kick up their feet. Fey and Rousey will be starring together in Do Nothing Bitches, a high-profile comedy from Universal Pictures.

First off, let’s have a look at where the film’s concept comes from:

There you have it.

As per Deadline, the comedy is to be “a female-empowerment tale dealing with wealthy pampered wives who get a rude awakening at a camp where Rousey plays the no-nonsense instructor.”

Universal manged to acquire the comedy pitch from Paula Pell, who penned recent Tina Fey & Amy Poehler film Sisters, in a deal that is said to be in the high six figures.

Rousey has been lining up more and more film roles since putting in work in The Expendables 3, Furious 7, and Entourage. The UFC fighter will be starring in a remake of Patrick Swayze actioner Road House, co-starring alongside Mark Wahlberg and The Raid‘s Iko Uwais in Mile 22, and leading her own biopic with My Fight/Your Fight at Paramount. Do Nothing Bitches will be her first big role in a comedy.

Fey, who is also set to produce the comedy under her Little Stranger Productions banner, will next be seen playing real-life journalist and author Kim Barker in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
