Triple H

WWE Studios has had an interesting history. First set up in the hopes that it would be able to develop theatrically released starring vehicles for WWE wrestlers in the action and horror genres, this fledgling wing of Vince McMahon Jr.’s empire has since gone through myriad strategy changes. It’s gone from making R rated films to making PG and PG-13 rated films exclusively, from giving its movies wide releases to giving them straight to video releases, it’s moved away from action and tried its hand at family films and comedies, and most recently it’s even teamed up with Lionsgate to re-boot the Leprechaun franchise. And today the studio announced that they’re going to be adding yet another type of film to their repertoire, by creating an animated feature. Which is an historic announcement indeed, as this new project will be the first time wrestlers have appeared in animated form since Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling hit the television airwaves in the early ’80s.

The Rock is still rocking some family friendly films, but it’s no joke that his affiliation with babysitting and trekking up to Witch Mountain helped make him a bona fide acting presence along the action flicks he was doing.

He’s starring in a new movie called The Chaperone – the story of a former bank robber trying to reconnect with his daughter on a field trip when, guess what, his life of crime suddenly comes back to kidnap him and his daughter. It would seem like something for Dolph Lundgren to tackle, but the tone of the trailer is way more lighthearted and faux charm-filled. Check it out for yourself:
