Universal and Blumhouse's low-budget action-comedy stars Patrick Wilson and Chris Pine
Director Joe Carnahan continues to assemble an impressive ensemble for his action-comedy "Stretch," adding Ray Liotta, David Hasselhoff and Shaun Toub.
Patrick Wilson stars in the Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions film as a down-on-his-luck limo driver named Stretch who discovered he only has one shift left to pay off a big debt to a bookie. When the chauffeur picks up a reclusive billionaire (Chris Pine) with some deviant appetites, Stretch vows to fulfill his every request, no matter how weird, to score the big tip that could settle his score.
As the night grows stranger and Stretch is pushed into some dangerous encounters, he worries that the freak in his back seat might just be his final fare.
Toub will play the no-nonsense owner of the limo company that employs Stretch, while Liotta and Hasselhoff are expected to cameo as themselves, according to an individual familiar with the project.
Ed Helms and James Badge Dale co-star alongside Brooklyn Decker.
Blumhouse's Jason Blum will produce with Tracy Falco and Carnahan, while Leon Corcos and Nila Najand will co-produce. Charles Layton will executive produce.
Universal will release the low-budget movie in North America on March 21, 2014. Production begins June 30 in Los Angeles.
Liotta recently starred in "The Place Beyond the Pines" and has several movies on the horizon including the Disney sequel "Muppets Most Wanted" and "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" in 2014. He's repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment and attorneys Stewart Brookman and Craig Jacobson.
Hasselhoff is best known for his heroic portrayal of Mitch Buchannon on "Baywatch," which holds the Guinness World Record for most watched television series in history. He's currently in pre-production on the indie comedy "Killing Haselhoff," which he'll produce and star in. He's repped by manager Eric Gardner of Panacea Entertainment.
Toub co-starred in "The Last Airbender" as well as "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 3." He's currently in production on the Ernest Hemingway movie "Papa," which reunites him with his "Crash" producer Bob Yari. Toub is repped by Abrams Artists Agency.
