Though it doesn’t hit until Friday, plans are already in the works for a sequel to the Taylor Lautner-led thriller “Abduction”. In the film Lautner plays a high schooler who discovers his parents aren’t his real parents and he’s been targeted by a team of trained killers.
Director John Singleton says that a follow-up film is “definitely” on the way. “We’ve been talking about it while we’re making the movie. Of course, I’m gonna direct it” Singleton told The Los Angeles Times at the Los Angeles premiere of “Abduction” this past Thursday.
Of course lots of studios will talk up sequels before the film comes out, and then quietly push them aside when the film flops at the box-office. So what if the movie bombs? “I don’t think we have to worry about that.” “Abduction” marks the first film Singleton has directed in six years.
