Merc With A Movie: The 16-Year Odyssey of the "Deadpool" Film
Hasbro’s Stretch Armstrong film may be gathering dust in a corner of Hollywood limbo, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see a bit of what might have been. When the project was still in the works at Universal Pictures, with Taylor Lautner attached to star, Collin Grant worked on some storyboards, which were animated by James Rothwell into animatics. You can see the result in the above video, which suggests the super-powered action sequences might’ve been incredibly expensive.
Stretch eventually lost Lautner, transferred from Universal to Relativity Media and even had The Crazies director Breck Eisner attached. However, just last month, Hasbro and Relativity officially announced their partnership was at an end.
