John Singleton to direct Twilight's Taylor Lautner in Abduction
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Within about a two month span, Taylor Lautner signed on for a handful of movies, including STRETCH ARMSTRONG, CANCUN, MAX STEELE and ABDUCTION. Until now, we hadn’t heard much follow-up about any of those projects, except that he may drop out of MAX STEELE to focus on STRETCH ARMSTRONG. Today, we finally get some news on ABDUCTION in that John Singleton will be directing everyone’s favorite werewolf in the psychological thriller about a guy (Lautner) that discovers he may have been abducted.
I’ve come around a little bit on Taylor Lautner and I’ll withhold judgment on the guy until I see him in something other than TWILIGHT. Those films aren’t exactly actor-friendly. But if I were him, I wouldn’t feel too comfortable handing over my career to John Singleton. After 4 BROTHERS, 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS and SHAFT, he’s in desperate need of a hit.
