The story stars Patrick Wilson as a chauffeur whose new ride is a devious billionaire (Chris Pine). Their night together leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also star.
Universal had planned a wide release but essentially dropped the movie soon after scheduling it. The film's producer Jason Blum has now spoken about the release date incident and says there is a chance it could end up at Toronto this year. He tells Collider:
"What happened with it was that all of the movies that we make, we don't announce and date them wide until they're finished. We got ahead of ourselves with Stretch and dated the movie.
The movie »

I was incredibly bummed when Joe Carnahan's Stretch was pulled from the calendar. I'm a huge fan of the director (The Grey was my favorite film of 2012), and Stretch has a catchy premise: Patrick Wilson plays a chauffeur who picks up a difficult and devious billionaire, played in a cameo by Chris Pine. As the night goes on, their interaction leads to increasingly dangerous encounters. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, and Ray Liotta also appear in the film. The movie was supposed to have a wide release, but Universal concluded it would be unwise to spend $20 million to $40 million to distribute the movie, so they dropped it. Yesterday, we spoke with producer Jason Blum for his new film, Oculus, and he also provided an update on the status of Stretch, and when we might finally see the film. Hit the jump for more. Collider: It was so disappointing »
