Remember CHiPs? If you’re of a certain vintage you can’t fail to; it’s a TV show from the 70’s about the California Highway Patrol, and it was famous for ridiculous OTT multi-car pile ups and wacky chases by the cops on the bikes.
It’s already spawned one movie – the straight to TV job CHiPs 99, which was famous for not being particularly famous.
A full feature film has long been mooted in Hollywood.
The idea has been kicking about there for years now.
The first movie was mooted in 2005, but it got nowhere until Warner Bros resurrected it in around 2014 after the movie had faced years of struggle to escape Development Hell.
Dax Shephard, who wrote and starred in Hit & Run anchors this particular project, along with Michael Pena, Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Brody, Rosa Salazar, Vida Guerra, and Kristen Bell.
