Ed Helms to star in limo thriller?

Ed Helms is joining the cast of Stretch

Ed Helms is in talks to join the cast of thriller Stretch.

The movie is from the producer of hit horror film The Purge and filmmakers have already signed up Chris Pine and Patrick Wilson, said The Hollywood Reporter.

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.

Virgo:

Be assertive about your needs. It's time to stop deferring to the pushier people in your crowd. You have an opportunity to land a good job, embark on a romance or showcase your talent. Don't hesitate to elbow your way past a rival. The person you want to impress will admire your strong stance. Turn a deaf ear to some disturbing gossip. The troublemaker who is spreading this story is just a jealous rival. Beware of tarnishing an innocent person's reputation.More
