Taylor Lautner to team up with Michael Bay for action film
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Ever since Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger practically backed out of the action genre, America has been looking for its next action star. Who knew that TWILIGHT’S Taylor Lautner would be one of the guys in contention? Turns out Michael Bay did and now he’s boarded the Taylor Lautner train (along with a slew of 15 year-old girls). Bay and Lautner are shopping a script that is described as “MR. AND MRS. SMITH meets WANTED”- vague but a script like that with these two big hitters will probably sell very, very soon. Although they are not really going out and looking for studio financing, they are waiting for the studio heads to track them down while they are both in LA on breaks from their films. That’s when you know you have some pull in Tinseltown people.
Do I love Michael Bay no matter how ridiculous his movies get? You bet. Will I accept Taylor Lautner as the next generation of action stars? We’ll see but I’m not completely opposed to it at this time, get back to me after he’s put a couple of years between himself and TWILIGHT.
