Ed Helms is set to co-star with Patrick Wilson in Joe Carnahan’s next movie “Stretch.”

Carnahan would direct with Jason Blum producing through his Blumhouse Pictures.

Story follows a down-on-his-luck chauffeur, played by Wilson, looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back. Helms will play Wilson’s limo driver colleague.

Blum’s Blumhouse international shopped the film at Cannes and Carnahan will join Blum as a producer. Tracy Falco is executive producing, while Leon Corcos is co-producing.

Helms is repped by CAA and Principato-Young Entertainment and can be seen in “The Hangover Part 3” which is currently in theaters.
