Clips of Chris Pine in ‘Stretch’
Last year Chris Pine reteamed with his Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan to shoot the comedy thriller Stretch which stars Patrick Wilson (A Team – also driected by Carnahan). Here is a brief synopsis:
In Stretch, 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 dangerous encounters.
The cast also includes Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, Norman Reedus, and Ray Liotta. Shot for just $5 Million, the film was due to be released in March of this year but in January, Universal (who was set to distribute the film which was produced by Blumhouse Productions) pulled it from the schedule. After failing to find a new theatrical distributor, Blumhouse has decided to release the film via video on Demand in October.
And here is a gag reel released on Friday.

Production To Start On Pine’s Next Project
In other Chris Pine news, this week Disney announced they are beginning production this month on The Finest Hours, which stars Chris Pine along with Casey Affleck and Holiday Grainger. The fact-based period thriller directed by Craig Gillespie will shoot on location in Massachusetts. The press release includes this synopsis.
In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel. The Finest Hours is the story of their heroic mission, which is still considered the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.
The Finest Hours is set for release in the fall of 2015.
