Nooooo! Universal has dropped out of producing the big Stretch Armstrong movie starring Taylor Lautner. The studio was planning a slate of films based on Hasbro board games beginning with Battleship. Then, the studio put Ouija, Clue, Monopoly and Magic, The Gathering in turnaround. Now, it’s Stretch Armstrong, which Universal at first was determined to make but which now has been dropped and picked up by Relativity Media. The Universal version had Rob Letterman attached to direct and Taylor Lautner attached to star, but that’s no longer the case with the new producers. According to Deadline: “The Tay-Tay camp is claiming ‘it was our choice’ to pull out of the film, but in fact a project insider told Deadline months ago right after Lautner’s Lionsgate film Abduction bombed that the studio was rethinking the project with Lautner as star but that Hasbro would make the final decision on the status of the project. Looks like that has happened.” Ugh. And I was SO LOOKING FORWARD TO A BLOND AND SHIRTLESS TAYLOR!
