Forces will collide when Taylor Lautner and Gus Van Sant make an indie movie

Nov. 1, 2011by: Niki Stephens

I love how uncomfortable the photo above makes me. Okay, so I sort of did that on purpose. But really, in what world do Taylor Lautner and Gus Van Sant decide to pair up?

Apparently this one.

Lautner is in final negotiations to star in a film directed by Van Sant. There are no major details on the indie project except that the plot is derived from a non-fiction article from The New Yorker. Lautner will serve as producer on the film as well.

Just in case you were wondering, the Stretch Armstrong movie with Lautner is still on. Have you ever opened up one of those things? Don't get that Armstrong epoxy on your hands.

What else can I tell you? Oh. Lautner sworn that he is "determined to work only with top directors and writers from now on as he strives to define himself as an actor". Can't blame the kid for wanting to break out of the bestiality whispering franchise.

Van Sant and Lautner hope to start production on the indie film next year.

It makes it painfully obvious that young acting talent is nowhere to be found.

well....

You have to admit he does seem to at least be trying, for however much that is worth. But it does seem like he's just trying to follow some sort of trend like "hey not getting taken seriously? do an indy flick" or something.

Top notch directors? Cause this kid deserves that kind of a career? I have no clue why Van Sant would want to work with him. I guess people in Hollywood just want to be that first director to propel Lautner into the world of fine acting. They should view it as some kind of challenge.

Oh Lord. This is embarrassing. I think Van Sant just wants to bang Lautner.
