Universal Pictures and Defender Entertainment in association with Blumhouse Productions and IM Global are now in production on the action comedy feature film "Stretch". The extras casting director has issued a casting call seeking people to work as background performers in an upscale high-end nightclub scene. Shooting will be taking place in Los Angeles starting June 30, 2013. In addition to the extras casting call, the principal actor casting director is auditioning talent for speaking roles. "Stretch" is scheduled to hit theaters on March 21, 2014.
"Stretch" centers on limo driver Stretch, who is trying to climb out of a tailspin over the loss of his girlfriend, but at least he's gotten clean from his drug/alcohol/gambling addictions. After messing up at work, nearly getting fired, and having the screws put on him for the six grand he owes his bookie, Stretch decides to take things into his own hands, and winds up chauffeuring around a certifiable nut job in the hopes that he'll receive $6,000 as a tip. Things go from bad to worse - involving enforcers, FBI agents, crazy celebs, and vindictive rival limo drivers - but Stretch somehow manages to find the moxie to survive and even triumph.
Starring in "Stretch" is Critics Choice Award nominee Chris Pine playing the lead role of limo driver stretch. Pine, a Los Angeles native, has enjoyed a very successful career starring in such films as "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement," "Smokin' Aces," "Star Trek," "Unstoppable," and "Star Trek Into Darkness". He is also set to star alongside Johnny Depp in the Disney feature film "Into The Woods". Also starring in "Stretch" is Teen Choice Awards nominee Brooklyn Decker, Golden Globe Award nominee Patrick Wilson, and Screen Actors Guild Awards winner Ed Helms.
Independent Spirit Awards nominee Joe Carnahan will direct from an original screenplay written by himself. Carnahan previously directed Chris Pine in the film "Smokin' Aces". Other directing credits include "Narc," "The A-Team," and "The Grey". Upcoming projects include the feature films "White Jazz," "Undying Love," "Nemesis," "Killing Pablo," and "Continue". Carnahan also wrote the screenplay for the feature film remake of the 1974 crime thriller film "Death Wish". Producing "Stretch" is Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum and Tracy Falco. Jerry Corley, Rob Rose and Charles Layton will executive produce.
