Shawn Michaels retired from wrestling several years ago, and since then he’s taken on a few various acting projects here and there. Now Michaels is set to join the cast of another upcoming movie, as WWE has announced that he’ll be appearing in “The Marine 6: Close Quarters.”

Shawn Michaels will star alongside The Miz who will once again be reprising his role as Jake Carter, and Becky Lynch will be appearing in the film as well. The official plot synopsis reads as follows:

“When Jake Carter (The Miz) and fellow Marine Luke Trapper (Shawn Michaels) stumble upon a kidnapped girl being held prisoner by a dangerous gang of international criminals, they find themselves in the crosshairs as they try to save the girl and bring her kidnappers to justice.”

“The Marine series continues to deliver action-packed entertainment to our fans, and we are excited to partner again with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and director James Nunn to bring The Marine 6: Close Quarters to a global audience” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “The motion picture debut of the talented Becky Lynch and the addition of Shawn Michaels to the series, alongside The Miz, is sure to bring the excitement and action to the next level.”

The Miz recently dropped the Intercontinental Championship to Roman Reigns. Miz was then written off TV so that he could take time off to film “The Marine 6” and production is set to begin on November 27.
