– WWE issued a press release in support of its new comedy film “The Chaperone” Monday, confirming that a child actress from “Modern Family” will join WWE Superstar Triple H in the film.
Triple H, who also stars in WWE’s “Inside Out,” plays Ray Bradstone, a skilled getaway driver for a team of bank robbers. Recently, however, Ray has been looking to leave the world of crime in order to become a good father for his daughter Sally (“Modern Family”‘s Ariel Winter) and make amends with his wife (Annabeth Gish, “Brotherhood”).
Struggling to find honest work, Ray reluctantly accepts a final gig with his old bank-robbing crew, led by Phillip Larue (Kevin Corrigan, “Superbad”). At the last second, Ray backs out of the heist to serve as a chaperone for his daughter’s school field trip. Without Ray at the wheels, the robbery goes awry, and Phillip seeks vengeance, chasing Ray and the school bus 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.”
Stephen Herek (“Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure”) directs the film, which began principal photography Monday in New Orleans, Louisiana.
