I can see how this would work. Twilight star, Taylor Lautner, has been cast in the title role of Stretch Armstrong. The film is slated for a 2012 release and will be in 3D.
Universal Pictures said: “In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office. He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely super hero with a fantastic super power. We couldn’t be more pleased that he has agreed to be our Stretch.”
Taylor is one busy guy! He’s got the last two Twilight sequels to finish and he’s going to star in the title role in Max Steel so we’re going to be seeing a lot of him!
In case you’re not familiar with Stretch, he’s a rubbery superhero based on a Hasbro action figure. Here’s a commercial from back in the day to help jog your memory!
