Patrick Wilson and Ed Helms have signed on to star in the action-comedy Stretch for director Joe Carnahan.

The story centers on a downtrodden man (Patrick Wilson) who becomes the limo driver for an eccentric billionaire. Little does he know that his boss is about to make his life a living hell. Ed Helms is playing the man's limo driver colleague, although the billionaire has not been cast yet.

Joe Carnahan is directing and producing with Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum, with Tracy Falco co-producing and Leon Corcos executive producing. No production schedule was given.

Patrick Wilson most recently starred in Prometheus, and will next be seen in a pair of thrillers for director James Wan, The Conjuring (July 19) and Insidious Chapter 2 (September 13). Ed Helms currently stars in The Hangover Part III, and will next be seen in We're the Millers (August 9).
