'Twilight' hunk Taylor Lautner to star in 'Max Steel'?

Posted on

The L.A. Times is reporting that reps for Taylor Lautner are looking at Paramount’s Max Steel as a possible project for the Twilight heartthrob. Based on the Mattel toys that came out in 2001, the movie tells the story of a teenage superhero. Lautner would star as Josh McGrath, an athlete who is exposed to nanotechological machines and gets super-human powers from them. The script from J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani is still being written.

Lautner’s publicist did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
