Taylor Lautner & Gus Van Sant: Film Project Coming!

Taylor Lautner will be teaming up with director Gus Van Sant for a new indie film.

The 19-year-old actor is also set to produce the project based on a non-fiction article in The New Yorker magazine.

THR says that we’ll find out who is writing the script later this week with production kicking off in the first quarter of next year.

Back in July, Taylor, Gus, and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black met for dinner in downtown Los Angeles.

Taylor‘s latest film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn hit theaters on November 18!

    you can always tell when someone is doing well..haters always resort to calling out one’s sexuality… as if being gay has any bearing on his career as an actor.

    it’s a business if this director didn’t want to work with lautner who is forcing him to?

    abduction has made $71,662,780 so far and still going ,not bad for his first film . and if a director like gus van sant thinks he has the protential to be in an indie film then taylor has the protential he is only 19 and still learning. Also he has already stated that he isnt gay . Cant straight guys be friends with a gay man . just cause taylor doesnt drink ,do drugs and sleep around doesnt make him gay it makes him a repectable young man . some people need to grow up .

    What’s happening to Gus van Sant? His last movie flopped, and now this, not a good path for him. It seems downhill since “Milk”. Lautner can’t act his way out of a paper bag, he is a terrible actor.

    Great for Taylor. and you pack of haters, go away with your bad atittude. Because he’s a good person and he’s just starting his carrer, so respect and watch him grow. cuz he will. Note that!

    Natalie Says:

    Taylor is very talented and seems like a very nice person. Hundreds of screaming girls show up because he has some thing special about him. People just hate because of the over exposure of the Twlight cast. Some of his lines like “I’m hotter than him,” have been chessy, but he is actually good. He is 19 just stop it with the homophobic commentary. Taylor is working with two men who are gay because he is not a homophob. idiots!

    natalie Kakowski Says:

    Taylor is very talented. If he didn’t have charisma a hundred girls show up screaming over him. Everyone that works with him or knows him seems to like him. Taylor is not homophobic. It is scarey all the hate you people have. If he is so boring why are we all talking about him?

    I’M SORRY to say this Taylor fans but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO Gus Van Sant is a brilliant director! My private Idaho is one of my favorite movies of all time and I’m kind of dissapointed in him chosing Taylor Lautner to be in one of his movies. I saw Abduction because it looked like a pretty good movie and could barely sit through it. It was just bad he was awful in it! He has a great body but all he is, is a pretty face. Shame Gus, shame.
