I don’t know Taylor Lautner, and while I don’t think too much of some of the roles he has chosen up to this point, I get the feeling that he knows a train wreck when he sees one (despite the appearance that, because of lackluster box office for Lautner’s “Abduction,” that this project fell apart on its own).
What I am referring to is that, according to Deadline, Universal Pictures will no longer be working on the Stretch Armstrong feature film, though Relativity is picking up this movie equivalent of kryptonite for some reason.
My question is: What took them so long to reach such a logical decision? We’re talking about STRETCH ARMSTRONG, quite possibly one of the goofiest characters in history of action figures! That’s almost as bad as a movie based upon a board game like, I don’t know, Battleship!
Oh, wait a minute…
Anyway, if this movie were going to the route of an “Inspector Gadget,” perhaps I could see it, but I am not at all sure that Lautner has the acting chops to carry a comedy, which implies that this film would be primarily an action film.
