Jessica Alba has signed on to play a supporting role in writer-director Joe Carnahan's latest, Stretch. She joins Patrick Wilson, Ed Helms, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, James Badge Dale, David Hasselhoff, Ray Liotta and Shaun Toub in the action-comedy, now in production.
Stretch follows one twisted night in which all hell breaks out over the streets of L.A. for one desperate driver. When a limo driver (Wilson) discovers that he only has one shift left to pay off a big debt, he goes from worried to hell-with-it-all daring. When the chauffeur picks up a reclusive billionaire (Pine) with some deviant appetites, he vows to fulfill the guy’s every request, no matter how weird, to score the big tip that could settle his score. But as the night grows stranger and the driver is pushed into some very dangerous encounters, he worries that the freak in his back seat might just be his final fare.
Jason Blum (The Purge, Insidious) produces the micro-budgeted Stretch for Blumhouse Productions alongside Carnahan and Tracy Falco (Blow).
