‘Twilight’ star Taylor Lautner to appear in new thriller ‘Abduction’

Lautner's new movie opens in the UK in September

Twilight star Taylor Lautner is to appear in new thriller Abduction.

The teen heart throb plays werewolf Jacob in the hit supernatural saga, which is set to conclude over two parts with Breaking Dawn, the first to be released later this year.

But before that, Lautner can be seen in the new John Singleton-directed production from Lionsgate. In it, he plays a young man who discovers that the people that raised him are not his real parents. The revelation triggers a chain of events that leaves him running for his life.

Abduction opens in the UK on September 30, with a trailer expected in the coming days. It co-stars Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Denzel Whitaker and Sigourney Weaver.
