According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Lautner has been offered a role in Relativity’s Goliath.
Taylor Lautner and Dwayne Johnson could end up being David and Goliath if Relativity has its way. …
Director Scott Derrickson is helming while Ryan Kavanaugh of Relativity as well as Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill are producing.
The early talks have not yet progressed into full-blown negotiations, as financial issues have gotten in the way. Both actors command upwards of $10 million in asking prices, depending on the project, so talks could end with a slingshot to the head before formal negotiations even begin.
Relativity is eyeing other casting options in case the scenario goes south.
As Heat Vision wrote when breaking the news of Derrickson boarding, “The story is set in motion when the fierce warrior Goliath is sent to track down a foretold king of the Israelites. A young shepherd David is thrust into an epic chase and adventure fighting for his own life, the lives of his loved ones and eventually the lives of his people. The story climaxes in a battle of literal Biblical proportions between the young man and the giant sent to destroy him.” JD Payne and Patrick McKay wrote the script.
