Lautner — who shot to fame playing werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight movie franchise — will bag the hefty paycheck to star in Northern Lights, which Tom Cruise is behind and which will be directed by Max Payne‘s John Moore.

Northern Lights is about “a gifted, young, aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling billionaire father and falls in love with a gifted, female pilot”.

Taylor — who goes shirtless in several scenes for Twilight sequel New Moonrecently insisted he’s happy to show off his body for other movie roles.

“If there’s another character later on in life that requires [baring my torso], I’m not opposed to it,” he said.
