Steve Oedekerk to Write "Stretch Armstrong" Movie

Steve Oedekerk to Write "Stretch Armstrong" MovieSubmit Comment
Universal Pictures has set "Bruce Almighty" writer Steve Oedekerk to pen "Stretch Armstrong," a superhero comedy based on the Hasbro toy.

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. He had a dog named Fetch Armstrong, and a sibling, Evil X-Ray Wretch Armstrong. Attempts to turn him into a movie stretch back to 1998, when Disney tried to make the film with Danny DeVito and later Jackie Chan.

"This is a new well from which to draw intellectual properties that bring a pre-awareness and nostalgia," said Hasbro's Bennett Schneir. "They are drawing filmmakers who find a real emotional connection and resonance, and this is proving to be a compelling driver for motion pictures."

The project marks the latest Hasbro property to find its way onto the Universal development slate since the toymaker made an overall deal at the studio. Universal and Hasbro are readying movie transformations of Monopoly (a potential Ridley Scott directing vehicle), Candyland (with Etan Cohen scripting and Kevin Lima directing), and Ouija (being developed by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes).

The only reason I'm excited about this is due to the fact that it will inevitably lead to a re-release of stretch armstrong toys. And even though I'm 15 years older than I was the first time I played with Stretch, I'll still throw down hard earned dollars to get another one.
