With the action film Abduction fizzling out in theaters, Taylor Lautner appears to be forging a new post-Twilight career path. EW has confirmed that Lautner is teaming up with indie director Gus Van Sant (Milk, Good Will Hunting) for a film adapted from a New Yorker article optioned by the young star. (The Hollywood Reporter first reported on the story.)

Plot and screenwriter details have yet to be announced.
