Taylor Lautner to Star in a New Action Movie For Summit Entertainment 2009-12-18 09:30:33

Taylor Lautner May Never Wear a Shirt on Screen Again

Well, Summit certainly seems to have faith in its favorite werewolf. The production company that turned Lautner into a teen sensation has another vehicle in the works for the young up-and-comer called Cancun. Lautner would play a college kid who has to save a girl and her friends from a hostage situation in a drug cartel during a Spring break trip to Cancun. Remember those crazy martial arts skills Lautner showed off on SNL last week? Expect those to come into play here.

The movie, which has been described as "a teenaged Taken meets Die Hard," doesn't exactly sound like groundbreaking Oscar-worthy material, but it could be a fun teenage thriller like Disturbia. Plus, somehow I have a feeling that putting Lautner in Mexico means plenty of opportunities to keep showing off those famous abs.

Can you see Taylor as a leading action star? Does he have what it takes to be the next John McClane?

Now it's hard to see him as a leading action star, maybe it's be easier to imagine when he be in 30.
