Fil Eisler's CHIPS
Lakeshore Records has released the CHIPS
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack available digitally On March 31st.
With original music by composer Fil Eisler
Dax Shepard (Hit & Run, TV’s Parenthood) and Michael Peña (Ant-Man) star in the action comedy CHIPS, directed by Shepard from his own script.
Jon Baker (Shepard) and Frank Ponch Poncherello (Peña) have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten-up former pro motorbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the CHP.
The inexperienced rookie and the hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kick-starting a real partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s unique bike skills and Ponch’s street savvy it might just work…if they don’t drive each other crazy first.
CHIPS also stars Rosa Salazar (Insurgent), Adam Brody (Think Like a Man Too), Kristen Bell (Bad Moms), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Jurassic World).
About Fil Eisler
Fil Eisler is one of the most diverse composers of the moment, with projects that range from big studio action pieces and comedies, to gripping dramas for independent film and hit television shows. Upcoming for Fil is Warner Bros.’ hilarious film reboot of the fan-favorite series, “CHIPS,” starring Dax Shepard, Michael Peña and Kristen Bell, which premieres March 24th. Fil also recently composed the music for the Sundance Film Festival Dramatic Grand Jury prize-nominee, “To the Bone,” starring Keanu Reeves and Lily Collins, which was acquired by Netflix, and was one of the festival’s top selling films.
Fil's inventive scores and signature themes enliven some of TV’s most popular series and notable films. He composes for Fox’s Golden Globe-nominated drama series “Empire,” where his classically oriented cues provide a powerful contrast to the show’s hip-hop soundtrack, as well as Lifetime’s Peabody-winning series “UnReal,” Bravo’s hit comedy drama series “Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce,” and Showtime's Emmy-winning “Shameless.” Fil was also both the composer and conductor for ABC’s breakout hit drama “Revenge.”
