Vergara, meanwhile, starred in Jon Favreau’s Chef and continued on ABC’s “Modern Family” as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, earning her fourth Golden Globe nomination in a row for the series.
Also starring John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story,” Shutter Island), Rob Kazinsky (“True Blood,” Pacific Rim) and Richard T. Jones (“Hawaii Five-O,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”), Hot Pursuit is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip) and features a screenplay by David Feeney, John Quaintance, Dana Fox and Katherine Silberman.
Hot Pursuit hits theaters May 8, 2015.
