Sydney Sweeney is one of the most popular actresses of the modern generation. People seem to really embrace all that she has to offer, despite some haters pointing out that she's not the greatest actor around, implying that her fame stems from a different kind of natural born talents.

It is possible that she has just been keeping her acting chops low key, while waiting for the opportunity to have an Oscar Winning performance that the Oscars desperately need to get younger people to watch their award show.

This may be that role, because she is cast to play Christy Martin, dubbed the female Rocky. The story will follow Martin's rise to becoming the the most popular female boxer of the 90s.

Sweeney is quoted saying that she grappled and did kickboxing from 12-19 years old and that she's been itching to get in the ring and transform her body.

Should be interesting!
