“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. But with Baker’s bike skills combined with Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy along the way.”
Well, clearly it’s a loose adaptation of the original TV show. That said, it still looks like an entertaining movie, and Dax Shepard and Michael Pena make for a fine a team so I will go see the film! And you?
Anyway, here’s a new international poster:
The film is written and directed by Dax Shepard. It will open in theaters on March 24, 2017.
