Relativity Media Kills Hasbro's Developing 'Stretch Armstrong' Movie

Stretch Armstrong

Briefly: Last summer, Relativity Media announced The Crazies director Breck Eisner was negotiating to direct Stretch Armstrong, a film based on the toy which first appeared in 1976. The project has been developing at Relativity after the property fell away from Universal, which once attached Taylor Lautner to lead it. However, it sounds like Relativity couldn't make it work either as they announced (via Collider) that they were killing the project. “Stretch Armstrong is an incredible character who will make an amazing movie, and we know that Hasbro has some new ideas they are looking at. Relativity and Hasbro have a tremendous relationship, and we decided to focus on other projects." It's probably for the best anyway.

Best News of the Week Already. One of the worst Ideas ever to be almost taken to Film, Shot down, Awesome. Maybe they thought that this was taking it to far. Hope this can lead to a trend of better thinking when bringing Ideas to Film.
