‘Twilight’ star Taylor Lautner to collaborate with Gus Van Sant

Lautner will produce and star in the new project from the 'Milk' director

Twilight star Taylor Lautner will produce and star in the next movie from Gus Van Sant.

The heart-throb, who plays Jacob in the supernatural saga, has teamed up with the acclaimed Milk director for a new project, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The low-budget, as-yet-untitled film will be based on a non-fiction article that Lautner has optioned from The New Yorker magazine. It will be produced via Lautner’s company Quick Six, which he founded with his father Dan. Production is expected to begin early next year, and a further announcement as to the details of the project is expected later this week.

Lautner had previously been spotted having dinner with Van Sant and his Milk screenwriting partner Dustin Lance Black.

Meanwhile, he will reprise the role of Jacob in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 later this month. You can watch the trailer at the bottom of the page.
