Dax Shepard is Writing and Directing a CHiPS Movie That Will Be More Serious Than You’re Expecting

5 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m not sure that I ever saw an episode of the original CHiPS TV series, but Warner Bros. is counting on people like me being in the minority since they’re making a feature film version of CHiPS.  And here’s where it begins to get interesting - Dax Shepard has been hired to write, direct and star in the film with the hilarious Michael Peña joining him.  Shepard will play Larry Wilcox’s role of Officer Jon Baker while Peña will be subbing for Erik Estrada and playing Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. My first reaction when I read this news was that this ship has probably sailed with ironic remakes like Starsky & Hutch being over ten years old.  But that’s were this actually gets even more interesting.  This version of CHiPS is said to be serious.  As in “not a comedy.”  Which isn’t really what you’d expect from Shepard, »

'CHiPS' Movie Gets Michael Pena as Ponch; Dax Shepard Will Direct

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. is finally moving forward with its big screen adaptation of the 1970s NBC cop series CHiPs with Michael Pena set to play Ponch and Dax Shepard as his partner Jon. Shepard will also write and direct the action comedy.

The story will revolve around two motorcycle cops patrolling modern day Los Angeles. The original series ran on NBC from 1977 to 1982, with Erik Estrada portraying the iconic Frank "Ponch" Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as his partner Officer Jon Baker. Rick Rosner created the original series.

Warner Bros. attempted to turn CHiPs into a movie a few years ago, with That '70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama set to take on the role of Ponch. The actor is rumored to have shown up in the office of executive Greg Silverman wearing the tight-fighting patrol uniform, exclaiming, "Funny, right?"

He apparently walked out of the office with the job. Though both The Dukes of Hazzard »

Dax Shepard Driving Warner Bros ‘CHiPS’ Film; Michael Pena To Play Ponch

6 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Warner Bros has set Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in a screen version of CHiPS, that TV series that ran from 1977-83 and featured two officers who patrolled the highways of California armed with motorcycles and the tightest khaki cop uniforms in television history. Shepard will play Officer Jon Baker (played in the original by Larry Wilcox), while Michael Pena is attached to play Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, the role Erik Estrada originated. Rick Rosner created the NBC series.

This is the most serious Warner Bros has been in turning CHiPS into a film. The studio tried it years ago, after That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama showed up in the office of exec Greg Silverman (who’s now running production at the studio). Dressed in the signature tight-fitting uniform, Valderrama merely said, “Funny, right?” — and he walked out with a deal and an intention to play Ponch. »

Question: Any Vampire Diaries scoop? Especially something about our favorite vampire, Caroline Forbes? —Chery

Ausiello: Oh, I’ve got Caroline scoop, and it’s juicy. Her romance with Stefan will become a major part of her Season 6 storyline, even if that romance isn’t exactly a two-way street. “She’s going to realize it’s a little more one-sided than she was hoping, and there’s going to be some fallout from that,” executive producer Caroline Dries says. »

NBC aired the first promo for the sixth — and final! — season of Parenthood during the Emmys on Monday, revealing the answer to everyone’s question at the end of Season 5: “Is Amber pregnant?” The answer, apparently, is “yes,” as Mae Whitman’s character is seen gazing upon a sonogram of her child with (assumably) Ryan.

Only Parenthood could squeeze that much drama into 15 seconds. The NBC tearjerker returns Thursday, Sept. 25, at 10/9c.

Inside the Emmy Parties: Mptf’s Evening Before, Showtime, NBC, ICM Partners Cap Emmy Eve

25 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:

11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch  was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

12:05 p.m. No ICM Partners brunch is complete without a chat with “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and his rep Mark Gordon. Vince was cheery as usual with a pink shirt to match. He »

Lena Dunham Has Trouble Riding A Bike In Girls Season 4 Teaser

22 August 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you like them or not, Lena Dunham and company are currently prepping for the upcoming fourth season of their HBO comedy series Girls. Today, the network released the first teaser for the season, which will arrive next year, though fans will likely be a little disappointed with the dearth of footage.

Essentially, the clip just shows creator/actor/writer/director Dunham, possibly in character as Hannah Horvath, riding her bike and taking a bit of a tumble. Because even though Hannah takes risks and ventures out into the world, it wouldn’t be Girls if she didn’t crash and burn every so often.

Honestly, the clip is more of a reminder to viewers that Girls is still kicking than anything else. It’s also slightly dishonest – production on the fourth season officially wrapped last week, so the show is actually in post-production right now.

Penny and Desmond still cannot get it together!  Lost's Sonya Walger has been cast in a "potentially recurring" role on Scandal, just two seasons after her soul mate, Desmond (er, Henry Ian Cusick), left the very same show at the end of season one, E!

About Alex – The Review

7 August 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If you’re a child of the 80s, like myself, then your know all about what makes a good movie about friends. No, forget that Friends TV show and its unrealistic sitcom stereotypes. I’m talking about films like the 1985 classics The Breakfast Club  and St. Elmo’S Fire, or Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) or even Revenge Of The Nerds (1984). We knew what friends on film were all about in the 80s, but whatever happened to that great emotionally-driven, sentimental sub-genre of dramatic comedies?

I have the answer… thank god for filmmaking dynasties. In the tradition of great directors passing the torch to their children, award-winning director Edward Zwick has clearly fostered promising talent in his son Jesse Zwick, whose feature film debut About Alex manages to instill a renewed sense of sentimentality into the friendship dramedy genre. With a youthful voice, writer and director Jesse Zwick recycles what »

About Alex Review

7 August 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“You know what this is like – this is like one of those ’80s movies.” No one could accuse writer-director Jesse Zwick of being absent-minded in putting together About Alex; this is one indie that wears its main inspiration - The Big Chill – on its sleeve, like a beloved accessory. Luckily, Zwick’s knack for naturalistic dialogue, coupled with his easily charming cast, is more than enough to make up for the film’s lack of originality. While it covers familiar ground, About Alex still feels decidedly comfortable and easy to slip into.

A big part of the movie’s relaxed charm is its cast, culled from some of network TV’s best and most zeitgeisty shows. With Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Max Greenfield (New Girl) and Jane Levy (the late, lamented Suburgatory) all in the cast, it’s almost tricky to view About Alex as its »
