Twilight star Taylor Lautner is in negotiations to star in the upcoming indie movie Run the Tide.
Lautner, who played Jacob Black in the hit Vampire franchise, would play a young man who kidnaps his little brother when he learns that their irresponsible, drug-abusing mother is returning from prison, intent on rebuilding a family life with the two of them.
As Lautner's character races across the roads of California with his brother, they imagine a future for the two of them full of possibility. Closing in behind, however, is their past, as their mother and her ex-husband try to track down their missing child.
This movie would be a departure to Taylor Lautner, and one of his most complex and challenging roles to date.
