One of the most versatile actors around, Mr Alfred Molina (anyone who can go from super-villain in “Spider-Man 2″ to comic foil in “Pink Panther 2″ to stern family patriarch in “An Education” deserves his dues!) will star opposite Hollywood ‘it Boy’ Taylor Lautner (“Stretch Armstrong”, “Twilight”) in “Abduction” – the Shawn Christensen-penned thriller that Lionsgate picked up for a pretty sum earlier in the day.
In the film, says Deadline, “Lautner plays a young man who realizes he was kidnapped as a child, and is forced to run for his life after he reaches out to find his real parents. Molina will play a dogged CIA agent who is one step behind, determined to bring the teenager in alive.”
John Singleton (“2 Fast 2 Furious”, “Four Brothers”, “Baby Boy”) will direct the flick.
