World Wrestling Entertainment, through its motion picture subsidiary, WWE Films, is still planning on producting three movies on its own. The HHH movie as well as the horror movie with Kane will definitely be going ahead as planned. There was also another movie centered around Steve Austin that also is still going to happen, however, at this time it is not known who Vince McMahon will choose to play the lead role originally envisioned for Austin.

A report on the Film Force website notes that Triple H's feature film starring vehicle "Jornada del Muerte" may be in trouble due to political issues between WWE Films' representatives and reps for writer/director John Milius, who is set to helm the film when it begins shooting this July in New Mexico.

The project, set to star Triple H as Jonah Hawk, an ex-marine who goes for revenge against a biker gang who kill his friend and kidnaps his girlfriend set in the desert, may be derailed due to political chasms between WWE Films' representatives at Endeavor (which represents WWE, their characters, and properties within the entertainment field) and Milius' representatives with ICM.

Endeavor was formed several years ago by agents who left ICM to create their own company, so politically, there is a minefield to cross before those two sides will want to work together. Milius had agreed to do the film after discussions with WWE owner Vince McMahon and without the involvement of Endeavor, which is now pushing not to use ICM talent and instead bring the film "in house."

Although there is a chance that Jornada del Muerte may fall apart due to the politics involved, Triple H and Milius have already agreed to work together on Milius' next Conan film, when that is produced.
