Dax Shepard wrote, directed, and stars in the new film Hit and Run, about an ex-getaway driver on Witness Protection whose past comes back to bite him. The trailer, featuring a forward from Shepard and co-star Kristen Bell, hit the internet today.
Hit and Run looks to be a fast-paced romp that combines action and comedy, and features additional performances from Bradley Cooper and Tom Arnold.
Bell, who will also appear as part of next year's Movie 43 cast, plays Shepard's in-the-dark girlfriend, who he is trying to help get to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Cooper is set to be a part of The Hangover Part III, with a release date planned for next summer.
Hit and Run opens August 24.
