According to Deadline New York, she’ll play Lautner’s girlfriend, who goes on the run with him after he discovers his own picture on a missing persons site and reaches out to his real parents. The movie — described as a Bourne Identity for teens — will shoot in Pittsburgh this summer. So get ready for paparazzi, Steel City!

It’s been a while since I’ve seen The Blind Side, but I remember liking her. What else do we know about the 21-year-old: She’s worked as a news and entertainment correspondent for Nickelodeon, is a fashionista who you’ll frequently find on teenvogue.com, and went red for her role as Lucy in the 2011 comic book adaptation Priest, which stars Paul Bettany, Stephen Moyer, and Lautner’s Twilight buddy Cam Gigandet. Do you approve?
