They’re Making A “Stretch Armstrong” Film

“Bruce Almighty” scribe Steve Oedekerk is set to pen the superhero comedy “Stretch Armstrong” for Universal Pictures reports Variety.

The toy, a 13-inch, blond-haired muscled figure whose limbs could be stretched to nearly four feet, was launched by Kenner in the ’70s.

Disney tried to make the film back in 1998 with Danny DeVito and later Jackie Chan.

Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir will produce the new film which joins the likes of other Hasbro properties like Monopoly, Candyland and Ouija being developed at Universal.
