Photos from the set of the CHiPs remake
Production is officially underway on Warner Bros. Pictures‘ upcoming big screen CHiPs remake and we’ve got a look at photos from the set of the buddy cop movie featuring stars Dax Shepard as highway patrolman Jon Baker along with Michael Pena as Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. Check them out in the gallery below!
In addition to starring in the film, Shepard wrote and is directing the feature, which also stars Kristen Bell (“House of Lies,” Frozen), Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Insurgent), Adam Brody (“The O.C.,” Jennifer’s Body), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Jurassic World, “Marvel’s Daredevil”).
The original series, which ran between 1977 and 1983, focused on two police officers who patrolled the California highways on motorcycles and starred Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada in the lead roles.
Said to be in the vein of buddy cop movies like Bad Boys and Lethal Weapon, the CHiPs remake was written by Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove before Shepard did his own draft. Andrew Panay is producing.
