Written and directed by Michigan native Dax Shephard (“Idiocracy,” TCFF ‘08) and starring his real-life fiancée and fellow Michigander Kristen Bell (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), “Hit & Run” follows a group of misfits on a hectic, hilarious and high-stakes road trip. In this film from the producer of “Wedding Crashers,” Charlie Bronson’s (Shephard) past comes barreling back to haunt him after he jeopardizes his witness protection identity to take his otherwise oblivious fiancée (Bell) to Los Angeles. Things get even more complicated when Charlie’s former bank robbing gang (led by a dreadlock-rocking Bradley Cooper) comes knocking at his door to demand their former wheelman’s services. With the Feds hot on their tails, the group embarks on a high-speed, rollicking thrill ride that combines the intensity of “Drive” with the outrageous comedy of “The Hangover.” Direct from Hollywood, Kristin Bell will be in attendance here in Traverse City to bring this action rom-com home to an audience of true film fans.
