HOLLYWOOD – New CHIPS movie starring Michael Pena and Dax Shepard is not the usual remake.
The Chips remake takes a revolutionary approach to the reboot of the 80s TV show. A spokesperson for the studio spoke to Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
Most remakes are deadly serious. They’re sincere attempts to recreate the original in exactly the way everybody remembers. We thought wouldn’t be a fun idea to remake Chips as a movie, but to do it with a wacky sense of humor because that has never been done before.
What about 21 Jump Street?
Not seen it.
And 22 Jump Street?
I wouldn’t see the sequel if I hadn’t seen the original.
And The Dukes of Hazzard and Starsky and Hutch?
Starsky and Hutch was a remake?
Of the 70s TV show starring David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser.
Okay. But Chips is going to be different.
Was Starsky and Hutch a comedy?
Okay it isn’t going to be different.
Chips will be released March 2017.
