Jason Isaacs is slated (mystifyingly) to portray Taylor Lautner's father in this suspense thriller.

Jason Isaacs attached to Abduction

Post by thunder » Wed Jun 16, 2010 11:51 am

Don't know what to believe any more, but this says Jason is going to be in a film called Abduction.

http://gawker.com/5565054/nicole-kidman ... -shes-dead

Yo, wanna hear some really strange casting news? Here are two bits. First, Taylor Lautner, the pig-nosed wolfboy who lives in the forest with his vampire boyfriend, is in this thrilla called Abduction, about a teen who discovers some bad teen things and has to go on the run, teenly. Which, fine, whatever. Justin Chatwin had The Invisible, Taylor can have his Abduction. But guess who's in the movie with him?? Maria Bello, Jason Isaacs, Sigourney Weaver, and Alfred Molina. Those are some heavy-hitting actorz! What's he gonna do, whine his sad nasal lines at them while Molina and Weaver are like "Is this why we don't have Oscars?"? I think that's exactly what's going to happen. So that's the first weird casting bit.

Here's some more info about the film:

http://www.disneydreaming.com/2010/03/2 ... ion-movie/

It has been announced that John Singleton will be directing Taylor Lautner’s next movie “Abduction.”

In the movie, Taylor plays a character who learns that his parents aren’t really his parents at all! In the movie Taylor must run for his life as he tries to stay alive – yikes!


Edit: Found some more:

http://www.deadline.com/2010/06/casts-f ... ost-rider/
Lionsgate has lined up a cast around Taylor Lautner for Abduction, which starts shooting July 12 in Pittsburgh. Lautner plays a youth who discovers the parents that raised him aren't his real folks, a revelation that leaves him running for his life. Sigourney Weaver will play his therapist, Maria Bello plays his mother, Jason Isaacs plays his father, Denzel Whitaker plays his best friend, and Michael Nyqvist plays the villain. They join Lily Collins, who plays his girlfriend, and Alfred Molilna, a CIA agent vested in bringing the kid in alive...

Hmm, a new project for our Jason- that would be great. But I will wait for more info, we need a confirmation from a reliable 'source'...I'm really crossing my fingers for this to be true.

:roll: wait, the site says that "Abduction begins shooting next month in Pittsburgh". So I believe he's done filming "Retreat"? I'm confused now...

I'll believe it when I hear it from Jason's lips.

Every time I get enthused the picture disappears into outer space.

All I know is that I'll be "Taylor who now!?" throughout the film...

Any way, I'm a Team Edward (even though I haven't-- and would rather not-- read Twilight, let alone see the movies)
