Stretch Armstrong Gets A Release Date
Yes, it's still happening. Hasbro didn't get too wrapped up in their plans to make movies of Battleship and Candy Land that they forgot about Stretch Armstrong, the multi-talented action figure who got picked up for duty on the big screen a few months ago. The movie, which will be written by Evan Almighty writer Steve Oedekerk, has been given a release date of April 15, 2011.
In addition, Brian Grazer-- usually known for producing Oscar-friendly stuff like A Beautiful Mind-- is joining as a producer for some reason. In a press release picked up by IESB, Grazer said, "Stretch Armstrong is a character I have wanted to see on screen for a long time. He's an unconventional kind of super hero with a power that no one would want. It's a story about a guy stretching - if you will - the limits of what is possible to become all that he can be."
Yeah, Grazer intended that line to be a groaner, but still-- come on! Stop trying to make this movie look like anything other than a big paycheck.
