MTV is reporting that Taylor Lautner will star in and co-produce Abduction.
Taylor Lautner has been lining up a lot of work lately, landing the lead roles in the big-screen adaptation of the TV show “Max Steel” and the effort to bring the action figure Stretch Armstrong to the big screen. Now he’s ready to go missing. Lionsgate has bought the script for the thriller “Abduction” and cast the “Twilight” star as a young man who sees his baby picture on a missing persons Web site.
Lionsgate picked up the project after a week-long bidding war for Shawn Christensen’s spec script. Variety reports that the studio paid a sum in the “high six figures” for the script, which the studio will co-produce with Gotham Group, Vertigo Entertainment and Lautner’s production company Tailor Made.
