Kristen Bell is set to join the cast of the Warner Bros. comedy “CHiPs,” which is being directed by her husband, Dax Shepard, TheWrap has learned.
Shepard and Michael Pena will star in the adaptation of the popular TV series alongside Adam Brody, Rosa Salazar and Vincent D’Onofrio, the latter of whom will play the film’s villain.
“CHiPs” follows two California highway patrol officers and their adventures in crime-fighting. Shepard takes over the role of Officer Jon Baker, while Pena inherits the role of Frank “Ponch” Poncherello from Erik Estrada.
Shepard wrote the script and Andrew Panay is producing through his Panay Films banner along with Ravi Mehta. Rick Rosner, who created the NBC series that ran from 1977-1983, will serve as executive produce. Warner Bros. executives Jesse Ehrman and Nik Mavinkurve will oversee the project for the studio.
Bell recently voiced the lead in Disney’s animated mega-hit “Frozen” and starred in the well-received indie movie “The Lifeguard.” She also starred in and executive produced the “Veronica Mars” movie that was released by Warner Bros. following a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign.
Bell, who just wrapped Universal’s Melissa McCarthy comedy “The Boss,” is represented by CAA and Schreck Rose.

For the first time in forever… Kristen Bell is guest starring on Liv and Maddie!
ETonline can exclusively reveal that the Frozen star will appear on an upcoming episode of the hit Disney Channel comedy.
Bell, who will be playing herself, will be sharing scenes with Disney darlingDove Cameron, in a special episode about girl empowerment set to air later this year.
The episode, entitled “Ask Her More-a-Rooney,” centers on Liv (Cameron), the actress of the Rooney family, who will star in a new TV show in season three.
While promoting the new show, Liv notices that her male co-star gets asked about his role and his work, whereas she only gets questions about beauty, fashion and other superficial things.
Bell will be appearing on a red carpet with Liv when they decide to “change the conversation” and prove that girls should be asked about more substantial topics, rather than the typical “Which designer are you wearing?” type of questions.
New episodes of Liv and Maddie air Sundays on Disney Channel.
