Michael Bay and Taylor Lautner Have a Big Secret Project for Sale
Apparently studios are ready to bank on a director who can't keep his camera still more than five seconds and an actor who has as much talent as the broad side of a barn. Deadline reports director Michael Bay and The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner are currently shopping a secret script around to be auctioned off to the highest studio bidder. Apparently Hollywood heavyweights are already foaming at the mouth for the project and a bidding war is underway. Unfortunately, the project's details are being kept under wraps, but insiders have described it as "Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Wanted." I guess that means there will be guns?
Aside from The Twilight Saga, young Lautner will have the thriller Abduction hit theaters in September, and he's also producing and starring in an adaptation of Incarceron, and an adaptation of Hasbro's toy Stretch Armstrong from Universal and Imagine Entertainment. Considering how much Bay loves working with Hollywood's "hottest" entities on the acting side (no matter how much talent lies behind their bright smiles and toned bodies) this isn't much of a surprise. Honestly, I couldn't care less about their collaboration, but average audiences will probably flip a lid for a Bay and Lautner collaboration. What do you think?
