Actor Dax Shepard is set to direct and star in a movie adaptation of beloved U.S. cop show CHiPs.

Reports suggest the When in Rome star will portray Larry Wilcox's character Officer Jon Baker in the project, while Michael Pena will take on Erik Estrada's traffic cop character Frank Poncherello.

Wilmer Valderrama also tried to get a similar project off the ground with Warner Bros., but the idea fell flat.

Shepard is also writing the script for the revamp.
