If you’re a fan of WWE wrestling and Scooby-Doo, but never thought you’d see the two worlds collide, you’re in luck! A new animated mystery movie is going to combine the two. Warner Bros. and WWE Studios will bring their properties together as Scooby and the gang attempt to solve a mystery at WresleMania. Wrestlers such as Triple H, John Cena, Kane, The Miz and more will lend their voices and animated appearances to the film. Look for the untitled film to be released on Blu-ray/DVD and digital media. Hit the jump to read the press release.
In part of World Wrestling Entertainment’s multi-film effort to translate the histrionics from the ring to the screen, Stephen Herek (The Mighty Ducks) has signed on to direct Paul “Triple H” Levesque (Blade: Trinity) in the WWE Studios comedy The Chaperone. Variety reports that the S.J. Roth script centers around “a getaway driver for a crew of bank robbers who is determined to go straight and be the best parent he can be to his daughter, while making amends with his ex-wife.” Anabeth Gish, Kevin Corrigan, and Ariel Winter co-star.
This is one of nine upcoming films for the wrestling corporation — all with budgets around $5 million — which feature such musclemen as John Cena, the Big Show, and Randy Orton in supporting roles. The sports drama Legendary will kick things off on September 10, 2010.
