Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner has walked away from his upcoming superhero role as Stretch Armstrong due to a scheduling conflict.
The actor signed up for the action role in 2010, dropping out of playing crimefighter Max Steel to accommodate the Hasbro project, which was originally expected to hit movie theatres this year (12).
But production at movie studio Universal stalled and it's since been picked up by bosses at Relativity Media, who are now eyeing a 2014 release.
The delay in filming has prompted Lautner to step down from the title role, according to TheWrap.com.
A replacement has yet to be announced.
