Warner Bros. have released the first trailer for the highly anticipated CHIPS film.
Yes, this is a film adaption of 1970’s tv series of the same name. The action comedy is written and directed by Dax Shepard who also plays a lead role alongside Michael Peña. Other cast members include Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Brody, Rosa Salazar, Vida Guerra and Kristen Bell.
The movie follows the adventures of two California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers as they make their rounds on the freeways of Los Angeles.
Here is the official synopsis:
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.
