Taylor Lautner is going from werewolf to super hero pretty fast!
THR reports that the 17-year-old actor has nabbed the role in Universal’s upcoming flick about the Hasbro toy.
The story follows an uptight spy who stumbles upon a stretching formula, which he takes and must now adjust to in everyday life and when fighting crime.
“In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global boxoffice. He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely super hero with a fantastic super power,” Universal’s co-chairman Donna Langley shared in a statement.
The movie will also be made in 3D and is set to hit theaters sometime in 2012.
