Taylor Lautner in a photo from Abduction

It can be argued that Taylor Lautner has been the most successful actor from the TWILIGHT franchise when it comes to landing new films. He’s been linked to several big upcoming projects and yet we haven’t even seen him carry his own film. That first film he will go solo on will be ABDUCTION, and today we’re getting another look at it. The story follows a young man who discovers a picture of his younger self on a milk carton and his whole world is turned upside down. The film co-stars Lily Collins, Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina and Maria Bello and is directed by John Singleton. It opens in theaters everywhere on September 23rd, 2011.
I always said that Lautner was the bright star in the sometimes dim TWILIGHT films and I think he’ll easily be able to carry his own film. However, I have been known to be wrong (very seldom) so I guess we’ll just have to wait until this Fall and hope that all the studios that have already hinged their bets on him won’t pull out.
