Jessica Alba is stretching herself for her next role…
The 32-year-old half-Mexican American actress has joined the cast of Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions’ action-comedy Stretch.
Alba’s co-stars in the film include Patrick Wilson, Ed Helms, Chris Pine and Brooklyn Decker.
Directed by The Grey’s Joe Carnahan, Stretch follows a limo driver (portrayed by Wilson) on his last shift who picks up a billionaire (Pine) whose freaky special requests get darker as the night rolls on.
The March 21, 2014 release is being produced by Jason Blum as part of his first-look deal with Universal.
Alba recently wrapped work on Film Arcade’s A.C.O.D. and appears in IFC’s Will Ferrell fronted spoof The Spoils Of Babylon. She returns to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City franchise next summer in Dimension’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
