Taylor Lautner is getting back into the action with Tracers! Finally!

Taylor Lautner, the very definition of modern-day badass is back in action!  Lautner will star in the action thriller TRACERS for director Daniel Benmayor (BRUC, THE MANHUNT) as a bicycle messenger on the run from the mob. After the epic slice of action cinema that was ABDUCTION, Lautner proved that he could run with the big dogs like Stallone, Willis, Statham, and, well, the rest of the cast of THE EXPENDABLES 2 with his acrobatic stunts and intense acting.  

Also, today is opposite day.

Here's the random-ass official synopsis to get you freakin' PUMPED!:

New York City bicycle messenger, Cam (Lautner) is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang.  When he crashes his bike into a sexy stranger, Nikki, Cam is immediately seduced by her and the thrill of the world of parkour.

Here's the thing: I think Lautner is probably a really cool, down-to-earth guy who is just trying to make his way in the industry.  Unfortunately, the TWILIGHT stigma is going to follow him for a good while until he proves himself more than mancandy for tweeners.  Going the action route?  Not the best idea.  Females aren't your demographic for action films and right now that's where his audience is.

I'm no Hollywood agent, but I am an action fan and the prospect of a Taylor Lautner action movie inspires only thoughts of a late night Mystery Science Theater 3000 viewing of said movie with lots of beer, nachos, and peanut gallery of friends to take part.  Somehow I don't think that's what he's going for.  Sadly, if he continues down thiis course, I foresee a direct-to-DVD shelf reserved just for him at Blockbuster.

Do you think Joseph Gordon Levitt's PREMIUM RUSH is in trouble now? 

Extra Tidbit: You've just been hired as Taylor Lautner's agent and have to advise him on his next project. How are you going to save this young man's career? Aaaaand, go.
