Known for his improv genius on MTV's Punk'd and recent comedies Employee of the Month, Idiocracy and Baby Mama, Dax Shepherd is set to star alongside Bradley Cooper, Kristen Bell and Tom Arnold in hilarious road comedy, Outrun.

Outrun follows ex-getaway driver "Charlie Bronson" (Shepard), living under an assumed identity in central California. In order to drive his gorgeous girlfriend (Kristen Bell) to LA to land her dream job, he breaks Witness Protection and hits the road. When authorities and his former gang (led by Cooper) learn he's back behind the wheel, he must put his driving skills to the test to get his girlfriend to Southern California in time and intact.

Also starring Kristin Chenoweth (Glee, You Again), Beau Bridges, David Koechner (US' The Office), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville), Joy Bryant (TV's Parenthood) and Ryan Hansen (TV's Party Down), Outrun is produced by Andrew Panay (Wedding Crashers) and co-directed by David Palmer, after the pair worked together on Shepard's directing debut, Brother's Justice.

Outrun has just wrapped shooting and is on the lookout for global distribution for 2012.
