Hey guys! No CHiPs is not a party movie, it is actually an adaptation of an American television drama and comedy series that followed the lives of two motorcycle police officers of the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The upcoming action comedy movie adaptation stars Dax Shepard as Jon Baker, Michael Pena as Francis “Ponch” Poncherello, Rosa Salazar as Ava, Adam Brody as Clay Allen, Kristen Bell as Jon’s wife, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Vic “The Ringleader” Brown.
Synopsis: Jon Baker and Frank ‘Ponch’ Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten up pro motor-biker 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 kick-starting 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.
CHiPs is written and directed by Dax Shepard and is set to be released 24th March. Below is the trailer…
