LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- World Wrestling Entertainment star Triple H, aka Michael Paul LeVesque, has signed to do a pair of high-profile roles in two Hollywood films.

He will star in "Jornada del Muerte," (Journey of Death), written by "Apocalypse Now" screenwriter John Milius. He will also battle Wesley Snipes in New Line Cinema's "Blade: Trinity."

"Jornada del Muerte" will be the first theatrical release from the recently formed WWE Films production banner, the Hollywood Reporter said.

The project, written specifically by Milius for Triple H to star in, is described as a modern-day Western set in the Southwest that involves motorcycle gangs, drug trafficking and broken codes of honor.

"Jornada" is being produced by WWE Films' Vince McMahon and Joel Simon along with Alfred Sapsy and Patrick Hughes, the Reporter said.
