WWE professional wrestlers Dolph Ziggler and Kane are pile-driving their way to Hollywood. WWE Studios recently announced that both wrestlers will share the bill in the upcoming movie “6:42.” Read on.
Ziggler and Kane star in a drug-bust-gone-wrong-turned-mad-bomber-ransom-plot. Ziggler plays Ray Fitzpatrick is a hardened beat cop of the narcotics division in a Los Angeles precinct. His daily police routine goes completely awry when a risky drug entrapment forced him to shoot a partner.
Kane plays the supervisor of the department (Lt. Cronin) who gives Fitzpatrick a free pass from his suspension. He did it when a mysterious package drags the whole unit to a hi-tech cat-and-mouse game with a wicked kidnapper. The main antagonist has a time-bomb fastened to his kidnap victim who happens to be a child. The title of this upcoming WWE Studios movie “6:42” comes from the time frame that is set before the explosive device.
