Lautner Gears Up For Paramount's "Max Steel"...

Taylor Lautner, the US actor that played werewolf 'Jacob Black" in the Vancouver-lensed "Twilight Saga" movies, will play the lead in producer Joe Roth's upcoming Paramount feature "Max Steel", based on the Mattel toy brand, from a screenplay by Chad Damiani and J.P. Lavin.

Mattel introduced the character in North America in 1999 as an action figure, then branded the characater in an animated TV series that ran from 2000-2002.

17-year old Lautner would play 'Josh McGrath', a 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete accidentally exposed to 'nanotechological' machines that become a part of him, increasing his strength, providing 'near-invulnerability' and the ability to disguise his appearance.

"...When a diabolical empire threatens to terrorize the world, there's only one hero who can stop it...'Max Steel'.
Working for a secret global security force, agent Max Steel must eliminate the enemy and its most terrifying villains, 'Psycho', 'Bio-Constrictor' and 'Vitriol'.

Join Max Steel on his awesome adventures as he voyages across the globe battling the forces of evil, completing different missions to save the world, on the beach, mountainside, in the air, through the city and beneath the oceans depths...
