Taylor Lautner and Marie Avgeropoulos have split after more than a year of dating, JJJ can confirm.
The split was “completely amicable” and happened a couple months ago, a source told E! News.
Taylor and Marie met on the set of their parkour action movie Tracers back in the summer of 2013 and were spotted holding hands for the first time in late July 2013. The movie has been released in some international markets already, but is scheduled to hit theaters in the U.S. on March 20.
In the time since the split, a source told E! that “Taylor is dating and having fun. Nothing serious.”

Jennifer Besser, Vice President and Publisher of G. P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers, told JJJ, “We’re delighted to be partnering with Temple Hill on this exciting novel. J.J. Howard has kept the fast-paced spirit and action of the film alive with her cinematic writing, while cleverly expanding on the dangerous romance and the characters’ backstory. A thrilling ride from start to finish.”
Temple Hill producer Marty Bowen added, “I’m so excited about this collaboration between our fantastic movie starring Taylor Lautner, and what we’ve been able to accomplish with J.J. Howard on this incredible novel. What makes this joint venture so special is that we’ve been able to delve even deeper into the minds of our characters from the film with this book, and I can’t wait for fans of Taylor and parkour to read what we’ve accomplished.”

Lions Gate just announced that they will be selecting five aspiring female directors to direct five new short films, which will be shown exclusively on Facebook next year. The films will be about characters from the series, but will not feature any original cast members.
“We think Facebook is a great way for us to introduce the world of Twilight to a whole new audience while re-energizing existing fans,” Lions Gate vice chairman Michael Burns told The New York Times. “This is the just the beginning—a template, if you will. You can probably guess what might be coming next.”
A panel of women in the entertainment industry will be selecting the female directors. The panelists include Kristen, author Stephenie Meyer, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer, Julie Bowen, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, film producer Cathy Schulman, and Frozen director Jennifer Lee.
“The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry,” Stephenie said in a statement.
