Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Interview for “Hit and Run”
Independent Films, Movie Reviews, Interviews
So the last time I sat down with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, it was for “When in Rome.” I can guarantee you that their new film “Hit and Run” is much, much better! Shepard wrote and co-directed the film (David Palmer was the other director), and his true-life fiancée, Kristen Bell, stars as his love interest. “Hit and Run” is a funny romantic car chase comedy, but above all, I enjoyed the characters.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Why make “Hit and Run?”
*** Executive producer Jim Casey and Producer Kim Waltrip are from my hometown of Palm Springs, so we talked about their involvement in the film
*** My two favorite scenes in the film – the close your eyes scene, and the first car chase scene
*** What do they want the moviegoers to take away from the film?
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
A young couple risks it all when they leave their small town life and embark on a road trip that may lead them towards the opportunity of a lifetime. Their fast-paced road trip grows awkwardly complicated and hilarious when they are chased by a friend from the past, a federal marshal and a band of misfits.
