Taylor Lautner on Abduction, Stretch Armstrong

Taylor Lautner on Abduction, Stretch Armstrong

Moviehole caught up with the congenial Taylor Lautner over the weekend (at the press junket for “The Twilight Saga : Eclipse”) who talked a little about his next role, that of a kid who discovers his parents aren’t who they seem to be in “Abduction”.

Lautner says he chose the project because, although an action movie, it’s one with a terrific storyline to boot.

“I think it’s the story that comes with the action. Abduction actually has an interesting story. It’s about a high school senior who finds a picture of himself on a missing persons’ web site only to realize that his whole life, for 18 years, has been a lie. It can’t be nonsense action. The action has to make sense and have a story behind it. I’m super-excited to get going on that. I start in three weeks.”

After “Abduction”, Lautner will be playing the ‘toy ‘Stretch Armstrong’ in a Brian Grazer-produced film of the same name. But he’s tight-lipped on details about that one – only because he doesn’t know any.

“You know, they’re doing all of the designing and all that stuff right now. They’re writing the script and everything, so I haven’t seen any finalized version”, Lautner says. “But, chances are that it might be a little different from the figure.”

In other words, Lautner doesn’t know what the character’s back-story will be yet.

“They’re not finished with the script yet. I think they should be shortly, so hopefully we’ll know soon. The cool thing with the toy is that there is no story. With a superhero, you have to stay along certain lines, but with a toy, you get to create everything, which is super-exciting and creative.”
