On and off screen, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are a perfect couple. The engaged pair are starring together in Shepard’s Hit and Run, a fun film that he wrote and directed about a man in the witness protection program and his girlfriend who wind up in harm's way when Bradley Cooper's crime lord tracks them down.
Shepard and Bell tell Movie Fanatic in our exclusive video interview which cinematic couple they modeled themselves after. “Burt Reynolds and Sally Field,” Bell said.
“Their relationship in Hooper and Smokey and the Bandit… there is something really special with those two. That’s the archetype we’re after,” Shepard added. Judging by the Hit and Run red band trailer, the pair do remind us of Reynolds and Field!
Shepard and Bell also give Movie Fanatic a scoop as to where we can see them next together. “We’re going to do Overboard, the reboot,” Shepard proudly states. Check out our video interview above for more!
