Another project we haven’t heard from in a while is the movie based on the popular Hasbro toy, Stretch Armstrong.
The movie was once set up at Universal Pictures with The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner attached to star, but it has since departed Universal and found its way to Relativity Media’s doorstep, who have been developing it since.
No actors are attached to star in the new attempt at making the movie yet, but the studio has found their director. It’s being reported that they’ve entered into negotiations with Breck Eisner to sit in the director’s chair, working from a script by Dean Georgaris.
Eisner is best known for directing the George Romero remake, The Crazies, as well as the action flick Sahara.
Screenwriter Georgaris has previously worked on Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and The Manchurian Candidate.
