“Hangover” star Ed Helms is in talks to join Chris Pine in the thriller “Stretch”, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film, to be produced under Jason Blum’s Blumhouse banner, would mark a real change of pace for the comic actor – known for his work in funnier fare like “Cedar Rapids”, “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”, ” Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” and the “Hangover” trilogy.

Says the trade :

Wilson, who starred in Blum’s Insidious, is playing a down-on-his luck limo driver nicknamed Stretch who is trying to get clean and pay back a debt owed to a bookie when he gets the passenger from hell.

Chris Pine already is onboard as the passenger, a nut job who is selling his ledger of criminal associates to the highest bidder.

Helms is in talks to plays a fellow chauffeur at Stretch’s company, the ideal driver who is a ghost and shows up as Wilson’s conscience.

Sounds a bit like a dramatic version of “Scrooged”?
