After three films, Taylor Lautner has become the fledgling heartthrob of The Twilight Saga. With the series coming to an end following the release of Breaking Dawn, he’s making sure that his post-vampire career is ready to go. According to Deadline, he’s currently casting for the female lead and love interest in his developing film Incarceron, which is based on the Catherine Fisher novel.
Sources close to the production state that Blake Lively, Emma Watson, and Jennifer Lawrence are the three frontrunners for the part. This comes as a shock because it doesn’t appear as if there would be any chemistry between Lautner and Lively or Watson. It seems like such an odd pairing. Lawrence has potential, but the other two could be long shots.
In the film, “Lautner will play Finn, who has lived his entire life on Incarceron, a savage, futuristic prison society. He meets the daughter of the warden, who is trapped in her own prison, a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like the 17th Century. She knows nothing of Incarceron except that it exists. She and Finn simultaneously find a crystal key that allows them to communicate and hatch an escape plan for Finn.”
Not only will Lautner star in Incarceron but he’ll also co-produce. The script is being written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage.
Who do you think should play Lautner’s love interest in Incarceron?
