11 September 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC is prepping a new family comedy from Parenthood duo Jason Katims and Julia Brownell. The network has handed out a script commitment for multicamera comedy The Walk-Up, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. From writer/playwright Brownell, the comedy is based on The Atlantic's July article "Two Couples, One Mortgage." Inspired by the growing real-world phenomenon detailed in the article, two 30-something couples — one with a baby on the way — decide to buy and live in a Brooklyn brownstone together, creating their own version of the modern urban family.

Dax Shepard Will Flash His Anus While Acting If That’s What It Takes

5 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Dax Shepard is pulling double duty at the Toronto Film Festival this year: He co-stars alongside Robert Downey Jr. in the opening-night film The Judge, and he's also got a role in Shawn Levy's star-studded dramedy This Is Where I Leave You, opening later in the festival. The really remarkable thing, Shepard told us last night at the after-party for The Judge, is that he shot both of those roles at the same time while also juggling his day-to-day duties on Parenthood and trying to squeeze in a cameo in the Veronica Mars movie for wife Kristen Bell. "Scheduling it is all luck," he admitted. "The Veronica Mars thing, that was me saying, 'Yes, honey, I'll be in your movie — assuming that the plane lands in time and the driver can get me to downtown L.A.'"Now, though, Shepard can relax and enjoy the fruits of his labors, »

Dax Shepard to Write, Direct and Star in CHiPS Remake With Michael Pena

3 September 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have turned to Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in a big screen version of CHiPS, the popular TV series which ran from the late 70s/early 80s. Shepard is perhaps best know for starring in Parenthood. The original series focused on two motorcycle highway patrolmen in California.

Shepard is set to take on Larry Wilcox’s role as Officer Jon Baker. Michael Pena (who will be seen in Ant-Man next year) meanwhile will play Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, the role made famous by Erik Estrada.

There has been talk of turning CHiPS to the big screen for a number of years now, with one recent pitch (which would have seen That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama play Ponch) failing to ever get off the ground. While both actors are well known for comedic roles, this new take on CHiPS is said to be far closer in tone »

Dax Shepard to Write, Direct & Star in Big Screen 'CHiPS' Adaptation

3 September 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Plenty of TV shows from the past have gotten big screen updates from "The Brady Bunch" to "Bewitched" and "Stasky & Hutch" to "The Dukes of Hazzard." But those were all years ago, so it seems a little weird to get news from Deadline that Warner Bros. has hired "Parenthood" and This Is Where I Leave You star Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in a big screen adaptation of the TV series CHiPS, which ran from 1977-1983, following a couple of officers (played by Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox) who patrolled the highways of California in their super tight khaki uniforms with their snazzy police motorcycles. More below! Shepard will take the role of Officer Jon Baker (the role played by Wilcox) while Michael Pena has landed the role of Frank “Ponch” Poncherello (Estrada's most famous role). The studio tried years ago to turn CHiPS into a film with »

Dax Shepard to write, direct and star in CHiPs movie remake

3 September 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dax Shepard is to write, direct and star in a big-screen revival of CHiPs for Warner Bros.

The action-comedy aired on NBC from 1977 to 1983, and centred around two motorcycle cops of the California Highway Patrol.

Parenthood star Shepard is to play Officer Jon Baker, the part played by Larry Wilcox in the original TV series, according to Deadline.

American Hustle star Michael Pena is also lined up to play his partner Frank "Ponch" Poncherello.

Shepard, who races motorcycles in his own time, is expected to perform his own stunts in the reboot.

A spokesperson for Shepard and wife Kristen Bell revealed earlier this year that the couple are expecting a second child. »

CHiPs Is Finally Set To Roar Into Cinemas For Warner Bros

3 September 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood reboot machine shows no sign of slowing down, as Warner Bros has tapped Dax Shepard (Parenthood) to write, direct and star in a big screen version of decades-old TV show, CHiPs. The series, which ran from 1977 – 1983, was essentially a police procedural, centred around two California Highway Patrol Officers, and really won its audiences over with the charming performances of its leading men – Larry Wilcox as Jon Baker, and Erik Estrada as Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. Those roles are now set to be filled by the equally charming Michael Pena (End Of Watch) as Ponch, and Shepard as Baker.

At the time of its original broadcast, the sight of Wilcox and Estrada in their clingier-than-clingy uniforms, astride powerful motorcycles, became as iconic as Catherine Bach’s ‘Daisy Dukes’ from The Dukes Of Hazzard – but unlike that show, CHiPs had hitherto failed to achieve a big screen reboot.

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

2 September 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | 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

2 September 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | 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

2 September 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | 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. »

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. »

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.
