What do a pretty boy werewolf teeny bopper and an outspoken, world renowned indie film maker have in common? Evidently nothing at all, except that they are making a movie together. Taylor Lautner and Gus Van Sant are meeting somewhere in the middle.
They have announced that they will be working together and that the movie currently has no details attached except that it will be
(a) an indie film
(b) The plot is derived from a non fiction article from the New Yorker
(c) Lautner will be producing the film as well.
(d) Lautner will be contractually obliged to not wear a shirt for the duration of the film.
I may have fabricated one of those points but that’s all anyone knows so far. I’m sure a few people will be scratching their heads at this unlikely duo but recently Lautner has come out and stated that he is “determined to work only with top directors and writers from now on as he strives to define himself as an actor”, I say all the power to him! I can understand that he may want to break free from certain damaging stereotypes and hopefully after his starring role in the Stretch Armstrong movie, said “Van Sant” movie will paint him in a more serious light.
The duo hopes to start preproduction on the film next year.
