Warner Bros. Pictures has premiered the first poster for “CHiPs, its upcoming R-rated action comedy based on the classic TV series. The poster comes ahead of the first trailer which will debut tonight on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”.
In CHiPs, Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank ‘Ponch’ Poncherello (Michael Pena) 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.
Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell and Vincent D’Onofrio co-star in the film which opens in theaters on March 24.
