Wilmer to be a CHiP

December 9th, 2005 // 12 Comments

tn_wilmer_teen_choice_cr.jpgHollywood’s obsession with re-making crappy 70′s tv shows into big screen blockbusters knows no end. This time, we’re going to be tortured with the movie version of CHiPs. And even worse, Wilmer Valderrama will play “Ponch.”

The movie will be an action-comedy set in the present day. The formula has worked well for Warner [Bros.], which has had success with recent TV-to-film translations such as “Starsky & Hutch” and “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, whoever is producing this horrifyingly bad idea is building it all around Wilmer. If I’m going to be subjected to this, then it damn well better be historically accurate for the time period. That means lots of casual, unprotected, coke fueled group sex. Wilmer can certainly draw on his long list of unexplicable conquests for cameos.

  1. The Devil

    This movie is dead on the vine.

    When they get around to remaking Sanford and Son I want the part of Rollo … that kat was a total pimpdaddy…

    UNEXPLICABLE is inexplicable.

    Sure, correct spelling is boring and lame, but not every group of letters is an actual word.

    A CHiPs movie? What next? “Good Times”? “One Day at a Time”?

    UGH!! Stop this crap already!!!!

    Wow, what brilliant scriptwriting — considering him and Masterson have already done a CHiPS sketch before.

    DEFINE SUCCESS!

    If a making audiences long for the actual terrible show that the hara-kiri inducing movie was based on is “success”, then yes, those movies were like the Allies on D-Day.

    I, however, don’t define success as reacting to the fact that you spent $10 to see “Dukes” with the same enthusiams as waking up hungover next to your naked mom.

    On the bright side, Wilmers swim across the Rio Grande was worth it after all.

    Wilmer should play Iraqi soldier #4 and be killed off in a tv movie version of the war.

    It’s not going to be historically accurate for the time period because the quote says its going to take place in present day. duh.

    Seeing how people just know him as the weird guy from that 70′s show, I’m not sure how well promoting the movie off of him is going to go, unless they get Brad Pitt to play the other guy. I don;t know, I never watched CHiPs, or That 70′s Show.

    I don’t think banging a long list of skeleton sluts and doing one tv show means that you can carry a movie, but that’s just me.

    GREAT! Now Jessica can give back Poncho’s shades. I can’t wait to see how plays the blonde dude with the bad butt-cut
