The classic 70s show, CHiPs, a police procedural following the lives of two California Highway Patrolmen will get an R-rated silver screen facelift next year.
Leading the new cast will be Michael Peña of Ant-Man (2014) and The Martian (2015) fame. Peña will take up the role of Frank “Ponch” Poncharello, the flirtatious and troublemaking motorcycle cop that was originally played by Erik Estrada.
The straight man to Peña’s Ponch will be Dax Shepard who starred in the television series Parenthood (2010-2015) and will be playing stick-in-the-mud Jon Baker.
Also in the film are Adam Rodriguez and Arturo del Puerto.
CHiPs will hit theaters March 24, 2017.
