Taylor Lautner Joins “Grown Ups 2”

“Twilight” series regular Taylor Lautner is in negotiations to join Adam Sandler in “Grown Ups 2” at Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The first film followed a group of childhood friends who reunite as adults after their high school basketball coach dies. Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph and Salma Hayek all starred and are expected to reprise their roles.

Lautner will “make an appearance in a fun role, in which he goes toe-to-toe with Sandler” says the trade’s sources. Oliver Cooper (“Project X”) joined the project last week while Sandler and Jack Giarraputo are producing.
