Jon and Ponch better dust off their motorcycles and clean their aviator sunglasses, because they’re about to hit the big screen.

Sources have confirmed that Warner Bros is teaming with writer, director, and star Dax Shepard on an upcoming big-screen remake of CHiPS, the popular television series that ran from 1977 to 1983 and followed two California patrol officers as they rode around freeways, handed out tickets, and just generally looked cool.

Shepard is on board to star as Officer Jon Baker (originally portrayed by Larry Wilcox) with Michael Pena in the role of Frank Poncherello (originally portrayed by Erik Estrada). According to Deadline, who first reported the news, the remake is planning to offer a more serious take on the original series.
