Twilights Taylor Lautner who is known to everyone as the ‘dude who takes his shirt off’ is looking to move beyond that with the new thriller Abduction. Abduction hits theaters on September 23rd and is a thriller that focuses on a youth (Lautner) who discovers the parents who raised him aren’t his real folks, a revelation that triggers events and leaves him running for his life.
Taylor Lautner has nothing to really show for his career at this point accept for removing his shirt in Twilight and a string of TV roles and made for TV movies. Hopefully once we see a trailer we can see if Abduction will be his break into a real career as an actor. Abduction co-stars Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver and is directed by John Singleton so on paper it looks to have some great potential!
Update: John correctly points out three projects Taylor Lautner has done which I overlooked which are Shark Boy and Lava Girl, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and Valentine’s day. Tks John for keeping me honest!
