Now that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is in theaters rotting the brains of the general population, actor Taylor Lautner is busy working on his next project. The film is entitled Abduction and it’s a spy thriller directed by John Singleton — I repeat a spy thriller directed by John Singleton! A few photos of the actor on set and in character have leaked online and they show a more mature, highly stylized Lautner who once again rides motorcycles. Take a look…

Abduction centers on a young man who discovers that the parents who raised him aren’t his real folks, a revelation that triggers events and leaves him running for his life. The film also stars Sigourney Weaver, Alfred Molina, Elisabeth Rohm, and Lily Collins. Lautner sure looks like a hard-hitting teen in these photos. We don’t know any 18 year olds who look or dress like that with a matching bike and all.

The actor has a strong crew of talented actors surrounding him, as well as a gifted director so here’s to hoping that they’re involvement helps him step his acting game up. This isn’t Twilight anymore, you’re rolling with the big dawgs!

What do you think of the first photos of Lautner on the set of Abduction?
