Breck Eisner (The Crazies) is in negotiations to direct Stretch Armstrong for Relativity Media.

The project was formerly housed at Universal Pictures, when Taylor Lautner was attached to star and Rob Letterman (Gulliver's Travels) was set to direct from a screenplay by Steve Oedekerk. Back in January, Relativity picked up the project, starting over from scratch, with new writer Dean Georgaris signing on in April. The project would mark a reunion for the writer and director, since Dean Georgaris produced The Crazies.

Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh is producing alongside Hasbro's Bennett Schneir and Brian Goldner, with Tucker Tooley executive producing.

No production schedule has been given, although the studio has issued an April 11, 2014 release date.
