We’ve seen it done with Starsky & Hutch, The Dukes of Hazzard and The A-Team. Now “CHiPs” gets the comedy spoof movie treatment.
Michael Peña and Dax Shepard star as Frank ‘Ponch’ Poncherello and Jon Baker, respectively, as Hollywood digs up yet more seventies television nostalgia to turn into a light-hearted comedy spoof.
Drawing inspiration from the 1977 series “CHiPs”, the movie from Warner Bros (apparently losing the weird capitalisation) ‘CHIPS’ follows the adventures of two California Highway Patrol motorcycle cops each with their own challenges.
Jon Baker is a busted up pro-biker attempting to get his life and marriage back on track. ‘Ponch’ is a cocky undercover FBI agent investigating a million dollar heist that may be an inside job.
‘CHIPS’ hits cinemas in the U.S. and U.K. from March 24th with a limited global release.
