BTS Of A Hollywood Sex Scene
It's really not as fun as you would think.
With Uber currently trying to put the taxi industry out of business, the world of the private drivers are surely increasingly set to come under the limelight. The first film to take to the wheel is the Jason Blum-produced comedy-thriller Stretch. This film nearly hit cinemas earlier this year, but Universal scrapped the release when producer Blum (whose behind low-budget horror megahits like Paranormal Activity and Insidious), couldn’t find another distributor for the film. The film is now set for an October 14 (US) release.
Stretch sees Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) play a down-on-his-luck dude who starts driving around a difficult, eccentric billionaire to pay off a hectic gambling debt. Driving quickly descends into a series of bizarre favours and dangerous encounters as the night goes on, and Wilson realises his passenger is more than he bargained for. Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms and Ray Liotta come into the picture. The film is directed by The A-Team/Smokin’ Aces director Joe Carnahan, from a script he co-wrote.
Stretch recently started attracting a fair bit of attention thanks to brave leads Wilson and Decker, who released a behind-the-scenes video of themselves shooting a steamy sex scene for the film: on October 5 Wilson tweeted a link to the video, writing, “@BrooklynDecker let's go viral.” To which Decker replied: “@patrickwilson73 the awkward truth behind filming a sex scene… Hahaha beyond cringeworthy.” The clip shows the two having a super awkward time, readjusting and giggling while a crew member sprays them with fake sweat, before finally getting busy, after which Wilson quips “Is that enough fucking?”. Director Carnahan suggests another take, and comes over to give them…notes. Bet Miss Daisy never got a ride like that.
