Taylor Lautner To Star In Parkour Themed Action Film 'Tracers'Melissa Molina |
Taylor Lautner's new project 'Tracers' may sound like another typical action film (another movie which requires him to ride a motorcycle) but once you find out what kind of technique they're using in the movie, it does make it sound a bit more...um, interesting.
'Tracers' will be a parkour thriller, meaning that it'll use the parkour technique of jumping up buildings throughout the film. If you want to catch a glimpse at what we're talking about, look at the video here. It's not exactly a fighting move but still quite a handy technique to know. We guess?
Taylor Lautner is signed on to star in the picture directed by Daniel Benmayor ('Bruc, the Manhunter'). The movie is described as follows:
New York City bicycle messenger, Cam (Lautner) is the hottest thing on two wheels, but is in debt to an organized crime gang. When he crashes his bike into a sexy stranger, Nikki, Cam is immediately seduced by her and the thrill of the world of parkour.
"The hottest thing on two wheels..." Like his fellow 'Twilight' co-stars, he's trying his best to make a name for himself outside of the famed supernatural romance movie franchise. He already tried and failed to become an action star with last year's bomb 'Abduction,' but it doesn't hurt to try again.
