Jessica Alba has been cast in the new action-comedy Stretch.

The Fantastic Four actress joins an all-star cast in the movie, including Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker and Ed Helms.

Deadline reports that Alba will take on a supporting role in director Joe Carnahan's film, although details of her character have not yet been revealed.

Stretch centres on Wilson's character, a limo driver with dangerous debts who picks up a billionaire passenger (Pine).

As the night progresses, the eccentric passenger's requests grow ever more bizarre.

Alba will next be seen in action crime thriller Machete Kills opposite Michelle Rodriguez, Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Vergara and Mel Gibson.

In 2014, she will also reprise her role as Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Stretch will debut in the US on March 21, 2014.
