Paige VanZant

Paige VanZant will go from the dance floor to the movies next, landing a role in “Kickboxer: Retaliation.”

According to a report by Deadline, VanZant was written into the sequel after her showing on “Dancing with the Stars.”

“Paige is the up-and-coming darling of the UFC and her star quality shines through on camera,” the film’s producer, Rob Hickman, said. “She’s a tremendous asset to the film both as an onscreen talent and as a trained fighter.”

Along with VanZant, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Gina Carano and Dave Bautista are all set to appear in the movie, which begins filming this fall.
