Director Joe Carnahan’s action-comedy Stretch was one of my most anticipated films of this spring, so I was quite disappointed when Universal decided to abandon the film’s theatrical release plan at the last minute. Thankfully, the movie is finally set to be released VOD next month, and Carnahan has been doing a fantastic job of handling the film’s marketing duties by himself. The story revolves around a down-on-his-luck chauffeur (Patrick Wilson) who attempts to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious, eccentric billionaire (Chris Pine). We’ve already seen some images and clips that show off the batshit insanity that we can expect from the movie itself, and today Carnahan released a Stretch gag reel that proves Chris Pine is an untapped well of comedic gold. The guy is funny, and his character looks to be positively off-the-rails. Give me this movie now, please.
Hit the jump to watch the Stretch gag reel. The film also stars Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Norman Reedus, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta, Shaun Toub, and David Hasselhoff.
