A bit of a Stretch for Grazer

A bit of a Stretch for Grazer
Clint

Uber-producer Brian Grazer is hoping to, er, pull “Stretch Armstrong” out of its gestational phase.

Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind”, “Angels and Demons”, “Robin Hood”) will produce the pic, based on the popular 1970s action figure whose limbs could be stretched to nearly four feet, for Universal. Hasbro’s prexy- CEO Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir also serve as producers.

No word on whether Grazer’s producing partner Ron Howard wants to/will be involved.

“Stretch Armstrong is a character I have wanted to see onscreen for a long time,” said Grazer, who is also behind a reboot of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” at Uni. “He’s an unconventional kind of superhero with a power that no one would want.”

Steve Oedekerk has already begun tackling the script for the comedy.
