In the latter half of last year, it was announced to much ill response that Breck Eisner (The Crazies) was in negotiations to direct a film based on the toy Stretch Armstrong. The property was dropped by Universal, and then picked up by Relativity Media who were developing the project.

It seemed to be going fine, and even had Taylor Lautner as a name attached to the project at one point. However, Collider are now reporting relativity has aborted 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."

Many were skeptical and it could certainly be said that skepticism seems well placed now. It's only common sense that a film based on such basic toy property would be stretched a little thin. »
