If you thought we'd seen the last of mannequin actor Taylor Lautner, think again. The star of The Twilight Saga is back, and he's still trying really hard to be a real boy with his latest role in the action thriller Traces. This time, Lautner uses his physical prowess to partake in parkour, making him a reliable bike messenger in New York City. After meeting a young woman named Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos), learns that he can make some serious cash if he uses his developing parkour skills to help a group of street criminals pull off some heists. It looks about as generic as you'd expect, and sadly, not even the action looks all that fun. It would be better if this were about Brodie Bruce and a team of fellow comic book inkers battling injustice.
Here's the first international trailer for Daniel Benmayor's Tracers from Mongkol Major:
Traces is directed by Daniel Benmayor (The Manhunt) with a script from Leslie Bohem, Matt Johnson, Kevin Lund and T.J. Scott. New York City bicycle messenger Cam (Taylor Lautner) is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang. When he crashes his bike into a sexy stranger, Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos), Cam is immediately seduced by her and launched into the world high-stakes world of parkour when he starts working with a group of thieves. Raffi Gavron, Adam Rayner, Sam Medina and Luciano Acuna Jr. star in the film expected in theaters overseas and maybe the US sometime in 2015.
