Jessica Alba - Jessica Alba to star in Stretch

Jessica Alba is to co-star in Joe Carnahan's 'Stretch'.

The 'Spy Kids 4' actress will star alongside Patrick Wilson and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' hunk Chris Pine in the new action comedy about a limo driver, according to Deadline.

The film - which will also star 'The Hangover Part III' actor Ed Helms and Brooklyn Decker - follows Wilson as a chauffeur whose billionaire client (Pine) makes a series of strange requests on his final night on the job, leading to dramatic consequences.

'Stretch' is being produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions as the first offering under his new 'first look' deal with Universal Pictures. The producer is best known for working on the 'Paranormal Activity' and 'Insidious' franchises, as well as recent hit horror flick, 'The Purge'.

Carnahan, who is expected to produce as well as direct, is behind the recent movie version of 'The A-Team', as well as 'The Grey' and 'Narc'.

Alba recently wrapped filming on new comedy, 'A.C.O.D.', and will next be seen in Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete Kills' alongside Danny Trejo, Vanessa Hudgens, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara and Lady Gaga.

The actress will also reprise her role as Nancy Callahan in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' next year.
