Taylor Lautner Leads Gus Van Sant’s Next

Taylor Lautner (“Abduction,” “Twilight”) will star in and produce a low-budget feature based on a non-fiction article in New Yorker magazine says The Hollywood Reporter.

Lautner optioned the article to be turned into a film with an already hired script writer expected to be announced later this week. Gus Van Sant (“Milk,” “My Own Private Idaho”) is set to direct.

Shooting would begin sometime in the first quarter of next year. Lautner is still attached to the “Stretch Armstrong” feature but that project has lost momentum at last report.
