Taylor Lautner: Max Steel Out, Stretch Armstrong In!

You know you’ve started putting too many things on your plate when you start dropping out of high-profile projects. We’re looking at you Taylor Lautner.

Recently, the New Moon hunk has signed on to lead in Max Steel, Stretch Armstrong, Abduction, and Northern Lights, as well as completing the Twilight saga with Breaking Dawn, which may end up being 2 seperate films.

So it comes as no surprise that the 18-year-old has decided to nix a few parts. Earlier this week, he dropped out of Northern Lights, and now, acorrding to Vulture, Tay-Tay has said goodbye to Max Steel, which was based on the Mattel Toy.

He is, however, 100% in for the Stretch Armstrong, a movie based on rival toy company Hasbro’s character. The reason for the stay? “Taylor realized Hasbro was doing a better job with its movie properties than Mattel,” according the the source.

Yeah, we have heard of a certain mega-successful movie called Transformers, now that you mention it.

Are you excited to see Taylor as Stretch Armstrong?
