Lautner To Rock The Rock In "Goliath"?

Here's an interesting pairing - The Rock and Team Jacob in "Goliath", a family adventure film adaptation of the biblical epic of David vs. Goliath reports Twitchfilm.

6'5" Dwayne Johnson is in talks to fill the role of Goliath in the Relativity Media and Temple Hill Entertainment production which Scott Derrickson ("The Exorcism Of Emily Rose") was previously attached to.

The story follows a young Shepard named David who is set on an epic chase to save his own life and the lives of his people when the fierce warrior Goliath begins tracking down a foretold king of the Israelites. The tone was previously said to be a period piece with contemporary sensibilities and a stylised look.

Meanwhile an offer is out to 5'10" Taylor Lautner to fill the part of David. The link is no major surprise as "Twilight" film series producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are also involved in "Goliath".
