Eric Champnella and Grant Thompson’s action spec script “Cancun” is being retooled by Summit Entertainment into a starring vehicle for “Twilight” hunk Taylor Lautner says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows an out-of-place college kid who travels with a girl to Cancun on a break. While there, the girl and her friends are taken hostage by a drug cartel and he is forced to save them.
The action will be designed to take advantage of Lautner’s martial arts skills and is the first project of a new production company Lautner shares with his father. Dan Lautner, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen will produce.
