As Annie (Kristen Bell) discovers, sometimes you can live with a person – even be engaged to marry them – and still not know some really important things about their past and who they really are. In this particular case, Annie’s nice-guy fiancée, Charlie Bronson (Dax Shepard of NBC’s “Parenthood”) happens to be a former bank robber. “I did the get-away driving part,” he explains. Which was news to Annie, since as a participant in a federal witness protection program, Charlie had previously failed to mention this seemingly important little fact to her. Now, however, Charlie’s past has come knocking, and he cannot hide from it any more.
In Hit and Run Charlie risks everything to deliver Annie to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Their road trip is not the sort you’d want to write home about, though. Chased by both the feds and Charlie’s former gangster pals – led by Alex Dimitri as Bradley Cooper – Charlie’s get-away-driving experience is put to the test.
Hit and Run is set for release on August 22, 2012 by Open Road Films. From the producer of Wedding Crashers, the film was directed by Dax Shepard and David Palmer from a screenplay by Shepard. Rated R for pervasive language including sexual references, graphic nudity, some violence and drug content, Hit and Run is an action/comedy/romance.
Also starring Tom Arnold as U.S. Marshall Randy, BeauBridges as Clint Perkins, and Michael Rosenbaum as Gil.
