First Image and Official Synopsis for ABDUCTION Starring Taylor Lautner

     November 5, 2010

Since breaking out in a big way with the Twilight films, Taylor Lautner has been extremely busy on a litany of projects.  Today, straight from the American Film Market (AFM), we bring you the first image and an official synopsis of Lautner’s upcoming film Abudction, directed by John Singleton (Boys n the Hood).  The film is a thriller which centers around a young man who sets out to uncover the truth after finding a baby photo of himself listed on a missing persons website.   When we spoke to Lautner earlier this year, he spoke briefly about this project, but the synopsis here elaborates much more. Since previously telling you that Sigourney Weaver had joined the project, quite a few more impressive names have joined the cast. They include Lily Collins (pictured with Lautner), Danny Glover, Alfred Molina, Michael Nyqvist, Maria Bello, and Jason Isaacs.

This project actually sounds pretty interesting, and the talented John Singleton has rounded up a fine cast.  This seems like a smart move on Lautner’s part.  He’s able to take roles in the larger projects like Stretch Armstrong, but choosing to do a more dramatic film like this one shows that he’s not all about  the paycheck/flashy roles. Check out the image in high resolution and official synopsis after the jump. Abduction is set to hit theaters sometime in 2011.

UPDATE: We’ve been asked by the studio to remove the images. Sorry if you missed them.

Here’s the official synopsis:

What would you do if you found your own picture on a missing persons website?  Teen Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) finds himself facing this very dilemma. Setting out to uncover his real identity, Nathan quickly learns his parents are far from who they say they are. When the police, government agents and shadowy figures start to pursue him, Nathan’s quest for the truth erupts into a full-blown “Bourne”-like man-on-the-run thriller.
