Breck Eisner is directing new Stretch Armstrong


Although Breck Eisner’s involvement with Relativity’s new Stretch Armstrong film was announced before, back then we didn’t have any tidbits of story or other information for the not-well-though-out-at-all adaptation. Through a press release, Relativity has given some light worrying story details:

“This original story will be a gritty actioner introducing the character of Lucas Armstrong and the life-or-death consequences he will face after undergoing a transformation granting him superhuman abilities.”

Although the name “Stretch Armstrong” can be mistaken for a pornstar name, I really don’t see how Stretch Armstrong can be “gritty.” All I can think about is the problems Relativity is going to have when telling us we should take a film about some guy who has a corn syrup body seriously.
