Dax Shepard (NBC’s “Parenthood”) wrote, directed, and stars in the new flick Hit and Run which also stars his real-life fiancé Kristen Bell.
This couple plays boyfriend and girlfriend in the flick as Dax takes Kristen on a high speed car chase.
Hit and Run is produced by the same guys who did Wedding Crashers and tells the story of Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a nice guy with a questionable past who risks everything when he busts out of the witness protection program to deliver his fiancé (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds (led by Tom Arnold) … and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie’s former pals, a band of gangsters (led by Bradley Cooper), enter the fray.
Bradley Cooper is nearly unrecognizable as the head honcho of the gangsters, wearing Rasta-style dreadlocks and wrap around shades.
Did we mention this car-heist flick is also a comedy?
Hollyscoop talked to Dax and Kristen at the junket for the movie and Kristen tells us, “You should see this movie because it’s got a lot of life lessons, it’s got a lot of action, and it’s got a real-life love story. It’s got a lot of comedy and all of the car chases are real, all of the stunts are real and we do all of the stunt driving and you’re not going to get that in any other movie ever.”
