'Stretch Armstrong' Canned by Relativity


Relativity and Hasbro decide to discontinue the making of movie about the well-muscled toy so that they can focus on other projects.

After three years developing "Stretch Armstrong" movie, Relativity finally gives up its plan to bring the Hasbro well-muscled action figure to the big screen. The project was supposed to go into production this year with Breck Eisner as a director, but it never happened. The film was originally planned to be released on April 11, 2014.

"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," the studio says in a statement. "Relativity and Hasbro have a tremendous relationship, and we decided to focus on other projects. We look forward to continuing to work together."

The film was first developed in 2008 under the partnership between Hasbro and Universal. Taylor Lautner was originally attached to portray the unique toy which could be stretched out, twisted and folded but always returned to his original size. The project never took off and Universal eventually abandoned it. Relativity then picked it up in 2010.
