Erik EstradaRejoice, all ye fans of men in tan uniforms with big boots who suffer no injuries from frequent, catastrophic motorcycle accidents! Yes, the inevitable has happened: CHiPs is coming to the big screen. Not only are Ponch and that bland white guy back, but Ponch will be played by the reigning king of cheese himself, Wilmer Valderrama. I mean, say what you like about Valderrama, but that's pretty much perfect casting right there. No word yet on who's going to play the other guy - what do you think? I find that, when you're trying to add a little charm to your cheese, the presence of a Wilson or two never hurts.

Since the movie is being made by Warner Brothers - the studio behind both The Dukes of Hazzard and Starsky & Hutch - we can count on many healthy servings of 70s nostalgia mixed with epic goofiness. Sadly (or happily, depending on your point of view), the movie is still in the very early planning stages, so it'll be ages before it hits the local multiplex.
