Taylor Lautner has signed on to star in the sci-fi prison thriller “Incarceron” for Fox 2000 reports Deadline.
Based on Catherine Fisher’s young-adult novel series, the dystopian fantasy follows a young man Finn incarcerated in a futuristic and completely self-contained living prison ruled by rivalry and savagery.
The daughter of the prison’s warden lives outside in a future world made to resemble the 17th century and is being forced into an arranged marriage. Both find a device, a crystal key, which allows them to communicate with each other and hatch a plan to escape their respective incarcerations.
Adam Cooper and Bill Collage are adapting the script while Hugh Jackman and John Palermo will produce. No director is currently attached.
