Taylor Lautner certainly seems keen to sell himself as an action star – but then I suppose having to do all that working out for Twilight needs to be good for something! He’s now signed on for Tracers, which will be sold to distributors at Cannes this month, according to Deadline.
The film sees Lautner as New York City bicycle messenger, Cam, who’s the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organised 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.
The film will be directed by Daniel Benmayor (Bruc, the Manhunt), and will reunite Lautner with Twilight producer Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. There’s no news on when exactly it might shoot.
