Dax Shepard and Michael Peña Hit the Streets in First Trailer for CHiPs (Video)
The first trailer for CHiPs starring Dax Shepard and Michael Peña was released on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and it looks like they’re going the 21 Jump Street route by turning the 70’s action television series into an action/comedy bromance. Check out the CHiPs trailer below.
Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Michael 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.
Directed by Dax Shepard, the film also stars Kristen Bell, Adam Brody, Jessica McNamee, Ryan Hansen, David Koechner, Michael K. Williams, and Vincent D’Onofrio.
CHiPs opens in theaters on March 24, 2017.
