Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Erik Estrada, who co-starred in the original series, was not thrilled about the new film. But, Peña and Shepard set the record straight, revealing that they received Estrada's blessing.
"Somebody said that Eric Estrada said something bad about it [but] it was great that he corrected them," Peña said.
"Yeah he tweeted me today," Shepard chimed in.
Estrada, indeed, tweeted about the film on Wednesday, writing, "Just watched the Chips trailer n laughed. Shepard n Pena r great. Cool stunts too. WARNING VIEW WITH UR ADULT SENSE OF HUMOR."
