Taylor Lautner -
Why Director Gus Van Sant's Hanging Around

You may or may not remember the name Gus Van Sant. 

He was in the running as a possible director for 'Breaking Dawn' before Bill Condon was hired for the job. 
(is this an excuse to watch the new Breaking Dawn trailer? Yes, I think it is. Click here :) )

Over the past few weeks, Taylor Lautner has been spotted in his company a number of times. What's that all about? Is there a film deal in works here?

According to a report from Hollywood Life, Gus Van Sant - director of the new film Restless and also of the 2008 award-winning film Milk - is well aware that he's been seen all around Hollywood with the Twilight star, and he's willing to dish on why.

"There's a film that he wanted to put together, but I'm not working on it ... yet. It's possible I may work on it," Van Sant says of Taylor Lautner and his film idea.

Van Sant did take the opportunity to plug Restless while chatting about Taylor Lautner. And who can blame him? The subject of Lautner ensures a positively attentive audience, you know.

"I hope [filmgoers] get into the love story," Gus says of Restless. "And they feel like they want to fall in love."

So now back to Taylor Lautner. He's already starring in Abduction, and will be once again thrust into the limelight as Jacob Black when Breaking Dawn Part 1, the latest in the Twilight films which premieres in November. Exactly what kind of film idea has he been pitching to Gus Van Sant?

Unfortunately Gus stayed mum on the specifics, however film buffs can only imagine the caliber of a movie starring Taylor Lautner and directed by Gus Van Sant. It seems film buffs and Lautner fans have only one thing they can do in their efforts to find out - wait in suspense.

  1. I will believe it when I see it. This was posted months ago and nothing is in the works. Taylor is suppose star in Goliath, Incarceron what is what. Have all of these projects for Taylor gone down hill?
