The Kidd here...
There hasn't been a lot of motion on the planned STRETCH ARMSTRONG flick since the project was dumped by Universal at the end of their Hasbro partnership and subsequently picked up by Relativity Media. Taylor Lautner became un-attached from the film, and that was about it.
But there's about to be some new life breathed into the stretchy hero, as The Hollywood Reporter reports that Breck Eisner is in talks to direct STRETCH ARMSTRONG.
Eisner doesn't exactly have the type of track record that'd get you excited about his involvement in STRETCH ARMSTRONG. The two feature films he has to his credit are SAHARA and the remake of George Romero's THE CRAZIES. Add that to the company that brought us BATTLESHIP and TRANSFORMERS, and confidence isn't what starts brewing.
However, a big part of what might actually make STRETCH ARMSTRONG will be the casting as well as the tone. If they can find the right frontman to be stretched out on-screen, and can find a good mix between comedy and action, there might be something to this idea yet. I'll have to see it to believe it though.
