Bill & Ted's director Stephen Herek gives orders to WWE's Triple H

After a few flaccid attempts in feature films (SEE NO EVIL, 12 ROUNDS, THE CONDEMNED), the rasslin' masters at WWE are trying a slightly different tactic: comedy.

The Triple H-fronted flick THE CHAPERONE comes from Stephen Herek, who directed 80s faves like BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE, CRITTERS and DON'T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD, plus the underappreciated ROCK STAR.

Aside from Triple H (a.k.a., Paul Levesque, a.k.a., Hunter Hearst Helmsley), who had a minor henchman role in BLADE TRINITY, the turnbuckle-free movie features "Modern Family" youngster Ariel Winter, former "X-Files" agent Annabeth Gish, and "Hey, it's that guy" actor Kevin Corrigan (THE DEPARTED, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS).

The synopsis: Ray Bradstone (PAUL "TRIPLE H" LEVESQUE) is the best "wheel man in the business," but he is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, Sally (ARIEL WINTER), and make amends with his ex-wife, Lynne (ANNABETH GISH). As Ray struggles to find honest work, his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (KEVIN CORRIGAN), offers him one last job. He agrees at first, but changes his mind at the last second leaving the crew without a driver. Ray decides instead to serve as a "chaperone" for Sally's school field trip. When the robbery goes awry, Larue blames Ray and chases the school bus all the way to the Museum of Natural History in New Orleans. Ray must deal with Larue, while supervising Sally's class on what becomes one of the craziest school trips ever.

Extra Tidbit: Triple H was once attached to star in an adaptation of the Valiant comic BLOODSHOT.
