Taylor Lautner ‘Stretch Armstrong’ Brings In Director & New Writer
  |  @   |  

We all know about the swarm of movies being made based on toys and board games, including one about the limber Stretch Armstrong starring The Twilight Saga‘s Taylor Lautner (Read: 3D “˜Stretch Armstrong’ Grabs “˜The Twilight Saga’ Star Taylor Lautner; “˜Battleship’ Now Set To Strike On Memorial Day ).

The script for the movie was originally put together by Evan Almighty writer Steve Oedekerk, but now Universal has decided to bring in a new writer to join their equally-new director.

The studio has chosen Rob Letterman to direct their Stretch movie, and has also brought in Nicholas Stoller to rewrite the existing script. Letterman has mostly animated film experience, having directed Shark Tale and Monsters vs. Aliens for DreamWorks, while Stoller has written Fun With Dick and Jane, Yes Man, as well as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, both of which he also directed. The two gentlemen recently collaborated on the upcoming Jack Black flick Gulliver’s Travels, which Stoller wrote and Letterman is directing.

Brian Grazer and his Imagine Entertainment are among the backers producing Stretch Armstrong, which does not yet have a set release date or even an solid timeframe for release yet. The movie will also be joining the current hip trend of being released in 3D.
