In the fantasies of many females, Taylor Lautner is their boy toy.
On the big screen, similarly, he'll soon portray a character based on a toy.
The Twilight Saga cutie has signed on to anchor Stretch Armstrong, a movie based on an action figure of the same name.
As written by The Hollywood Reporter, this family friendly action film will tell the story of “an uptight spy who stumbles across a stretching formula, which he takes and must now adjust to in everyday life and when fighting crime."
Check out the following commercial for the Stretch Armstrong toy to see get an idea of what Lautner is in for:
The movie, which will be released by Universal Pictures, will be filmed with 3-D technology.
"In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office," said studio cochair Donna Langley. "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."
Look for Stretch Armstrong to hit theaters in 2012. This summer, of course, you can see Lautner reprise the role of Jacob in Eclipse.
