Ed Helms is in talks to join the cast of thriller Stretch.
Insidious actor Patrick will play a down-on-his-luck limo driver called Stretch who gets into trouble when the passenger from hell, Star Trek's Chris Pine, gets into his car.
Chris's character is selling his ledger of crime associates to the highest bidder and the driver is struggling to stay clean and pay off a bookies' debt.
The Hangover star Ed would be slated to play another chauffeur at the company who would show up as Patrick's character's conscience.
At the moment filming is planned for the summer.
Ed can be seen later this summer in comedy We're The Millers with Jennifer Aniston and is currently filming another comedy, Someone Marry Barry.
