Taylor Lautner and Dwayne Johnson may soon face off on the big screen. The actors are reportedly in “early talks” to appear in Relativity Media’s Goliath, a source close to the project told Access Hollywood. The Twilight Saga heartthrob would play the role of David, the shepherd boy-turned-giant-slaying future king in the Biblically-based film, and Dwayne would tackle the role of Goliath, the menacing warrior sent to destroy the Israelites. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) is set to direct the project. But Taylor fans won’t have to wait for Goliath or even The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, as the the 19-year-old hunky star can soon be seen in the action thriller, Abduction, alongside real-life girlfriend Lily Collins, which hits theaters on September 23.
Taylor dished in the September issue of VMAN that there are a lot of perks to being a part of the Twilight franchise — a ton of adoring fans, invites to exclusive Hollywood parties, the opportunity to book more high-profile roles — but there is a downside, too. “When I am traveling the world promoting the films, I say I am on vacation, but it’s not really true, I guess,” he tells the mag. “When I go to a beautiful city I spend the whole time in a hotel room and then I am back on a plane to the next place.” He continues that because of his busy work schedule he rarely finds time to kick back and relax. “If I’m not filming, I’m promoting, and if it wasn’t Twilight, it was a different movie, so it got really busy,” he says. “I hang out with my friends, family, and kind of just — I don’t even know. It’s like, when I am not filming, it seems like — I don’t even know what I do.” He does, however, seem quite versed in looking lip-smacking delish stepping out in these piping hot Carrera shades. –rpuccia
