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.

Based on a screen adaptation of the bestselling book by Heidi Murkoff, the film follows a group of expectant parents whose lives are all somehow intertwined, no matter how different they all may seem.

Along with Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick and Brooklyn Decker form part of the all-star ensemble cast.

Jennifer Lopez's What To Expect Poster

All of the characters – except Jennifer Lopez’s, who is adopting – are shown in various stages of pregnancy. A quote from the character is also included, and ranges from the sweets (“I can’t wait to meet my baby.”) to the funny (“If I knew I’d have a rack like this, I would have gotten knocked up years ago.” and the desperate  (“I’m calling bull$#!%. Pregnancy sucks.”)

Many of the quotes on the poster are lines heard in the trailer for the film, which co-stars Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, Dennis Quaid, Chris Rock, Rodrigo Santoro, Ben Falcone and Joe Manganiello.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting is set for release on May 11.
