Taking a break from the Twilight franchise, Taylor Launter stars in “Abduction”, a thriller flick directed by John Singleton (“Boyz n the Hood”). “Abduction” follows the story a young man who after finding a baby photo of himself on a missing persons website, goes on a mission to find out the truth about his life. When previously asked for details, Lautner only briefly touched upon what the film would entail, but since then an official synopsis and a first image have been released.
What would you do if you found your own picture on a missing persons website? Teen Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) finds himself facing this very dilemma. Setting out to uncover his real identity, Nathan quickly learns his parents are far from who they say they are. When the police, government agents and shadowy figures start to pursue him, Nathan’s quest for the truth erupts into a full-blown “Bourne”-like man-on-the-run thrill.
Co-starring with Lautner is Lily Collins, daughter of Phil Collins and quite an up-and-comer in her own right. Breaking through in the monster surprise hit of 2009, “The Blind Side”, Collins was once a contender for the female lead in the “Spider-Man” reboot and has been tapped to introduce Juliet Capulet to a new generation in Carlo Carlei’s new adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet”.
In addition to the two young stars, the film also boasts a plethora of big names. They include Sigourney Weaver, Danny Glover, Alfred Molina Michael Nyqvist, Maria Bello and Jason Isaacs. The film is slated for a 2011 release.
