Warner Bros. UK has today released the official trailer and one-sheet for the hilarious action comedy, CHIPS, starring Dax Shepard and Michael Peña, driving into cinemas March 24 2017.
Shepard also directs from a script he penned based on the characters from the popular ‘70s television series created by Rick Rosner.
Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles but for very different reasons.
Baker is a beaten up pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the CHP.
The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done.
But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.
The film also stars Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell and Vincent D’Onofrio, with Andrew Panay producing under his Panay Films banner, alongside Ravi Mehta.
The executive producers are Robert J. Dohrmann, Nate Tuck, Rick Rosner, Michael Peña, and Dax Shepard.
Collaborating with Shepard behind the scenes are cinematographer Mitchell Amundsen, production designer Maher Ahmad, editor Dan Lebental and costume designer Diane Crooke.
CHIPS IS RELEASED IN CINEMAS ON MARCH 24 2017.
