Taylor Lautner is Max Steel!

Taylor Lautner is Max Steel!

Taylor Lautner is looking to show off those martial arts skills of his even more.

The L.A. Times reports that the 17-year-old Twilight hunk’s name is floating around the might-be project of Max Steel.

Taylor would play Josh McGrath, a 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete who is accidentally exposed to the unleashed power of nanotechological machines, which become part of him and give him increased strength, near-invulnerability and the ability to change his appearance.

TELL JJJ: Do you think Taylor is meant to play Max Steel?

UPDATE: Nikki Finke reports that Taylor has nabbed the role. Congrats, Taylor!
