Taylor Lautner Teaming Up with Michael Bay?
What happens when you combine Taylor Lautner with Transformers director Michael Bay? Hopefully lots of action – and muscles.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the 19-year-old Twilight hunk is teaming up with Bay for a new action-packed movie that is being described as "Mr. and Mrs. Smith meets Wanted."
Deadline reports that Taylor and Bay sent out their script to the major movie studios on Tuesday night. There's no word on which studio will pick up the script but considering that both Taylor and Michael are two of the biggest stars in Hollywood they are sure to find a nice home for their new flick.
Unlike his indie film-loving Twilight cast-mates Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, Taylor is clearly interested in pursuing a big-budget action film career. Taylor has several action projects in the works including Adbuction (co-starring rumored girlfriend Lily Collins) and Stretch Arm-Strong.
Watch Taylor's action film chops in the Eclipse trailer below.
Michael has previously catapulted the careers of stars like Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. While Taylor doesn't need any career boosts – he was recently named the highest-paid teen in Hollywood – a big Bay project could help him with his post-Twilight life.
