Kristen Bell the star of “Frozen” and “Bad Moms” dives into the role of Karen, the undeserving object of rookie cop Jon Baker’s (Dax Shepard) self-improvement efforts, in the new action-comedy CHIPS. Bell who is married to the film’s director and writer Dax Shepard talked with Cinema Buzz’s Shawn Edwards about working with her spouse on the movie.
Dax Shepard (Hit & Run, TV’s Parenthood) and Michael Peña (Ant-Man) star in the action comedy CHIPS, directed by Shepard from his own script.
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 former 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 the hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s unique bike skills and Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy first.
CHIPS also stars Rosa Salazar (Insurgent), Adam Brody (Think Like a Man Too), Kristen Bell (Bad Moms), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Jurassic World).
