Earlier this week, the first look was released of Taylor Lautner in the upcoming conspiracy thriller Abduction.
Liongate has released two more images today of Lautner in Abduction, where he plays a high school senior who finds his baby photo on a missing persons website, and realizes the people who raised him aren’t his real parents.
Check out the photos here below; one is a behind-the-scenes look at Lautner running (it seems like he’ll be doing quite a bit of this in the film); the other is of Lautner with co-star Lily Collins. I also updated the first-look photo of Lautner with a hi-res version.
Before you think this film to be one of those Lifetime movies of the week, Abduction supposedly is more action-packed, as Lautner’s character Nathan becomes a target of the CIA and the Serbian Secret Service and both organizations are invested in whether Nathan lives or dies.
Seems like this could be the Twilight star’s jump from teenage heartthrob to leading action man. If he pulls this off, I think we’ll be seeing him in more roles like this, and who knows, maybe there’s a Bourne-type of franchise in his future.
Abduction will be released in theaters on September 23, 2011, and also stars Alfred Molina and Sigourney Weaver.
