Summit Does Not Want Taylor Lautner?

Entertainment Weekly has Twilight news about Taylor Lautner future in the series:  Another of Hardwicke’s primary concerns was that Edward remains MIA throughout New Moon’s middle portion. In her own opening-weekend interview, she told EW: You have to get the chemistry as strong ­between Jacob and Bella as it was between Bella and Edward.

You also have to do, some­thing with that arc: She’s in love with somebody, he disappears, she falls in love with someone else, and the first guy comes back. Movies like Pearl Harbor have tried it. It absolutely didn’t work.’ With or without Hardwicke, Summit ­faces other snags. Two sources tell EW the studio doesn’t want to rehire baby-faced Taylor Lautner as Jacob..

..though Lautner’s agent has apparently reached out to the ­imaging company behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in an attempt to demonstrate to Summit how a digitally bulked-up Lautner could work. Summit says it won’t make a decision until a new filmmaker is on board.

There’s also the matter of finding a cast of Native American actors to play Jacob’s werewolf clan, a difficult challenge Hardwicke was also faced with before ­settling on Lautner, who isn’t completely ­Native American. And with a slightly increased budget of $50 million, much of which is ­assumed will go to leads asking for heftier paydays, location shoots in Italy, and ramped-up F/X, Summit will have to cut costs somewhere.

    omgg like honestly i dont get why they would replace taylor he is amazinnggg and hott!!!! like seriously hes the perfect jacob!! and wtff!!! jacob is supposed to be like 16 in the book so whats the problem here that doesnt fit the physical character?! thats what techonologys for!!!! UGHH WOWW im gonna fcking kill summitt if they dont keep jacob!!!!

  • mimi

    okay, i love twilight and i love taylor as jacob.
    but you can’t just hire someone to play the part, then, have him not be in the next movie.
    first of all, that would be a waste of time to have to do a new casting for the role.
    and last off if they knew they were gonna do this then they should’ve thought about it first before shooting twilight.
    i don’t believe this, it just sounds so false to me.
    taylor must stay as jacob!!!!

  • http://facebook.com twilightfan:)

    they better not take taylor out of it he is half the reason i went and saw the movie and if they take him out i will die and never see new moon!!! he is perfect and exactly how the book explained. he is supposed to look 16 and he does so you know hes perfect!!!!!!!!

  • afsafafd

    new moon is STUPID without taylor.

    Wow.
    They better fucking not do that.
    That would be the stupidest thing ever.
    He was already in the first movie,
    you can’t just take him out and replace him.
    That makes everything so fucked.

    Like, yeah he’s not 7 feet tall.. EDIT THE FUCKING MOVIE.
    just like they made Rob run fast, and climb trees.
    They can make Taylor do that same, except height wise.

    AH!!!

  • rachelle

    BUT!!!

    JACOB BLACKS CHARCTER GROWS!
    OKEY!
    HOW THE FCK IS TAYLOR GONNA GROW IN A FEW MONTHS CUZ THIS MOIVE GONNA BE OUT IN A YEAR OR SOO.
    THEY HAVE TO DO IT, IF HE WOULD HAVE READ THE SECOND HE WOULD HAVE KNOWN HE COULDNT HAVE BEEN JACOB FOR LONG.

    DONT TAKE TAYLOR OUT!!!>=I

  • Anonymous

    i completely understand what the filmakers are saying but i wonder if they thought about this before hiring him in the first place
    if this was there plan all along, to get a young guy and then replace him,there may be little hope for taylor
    but he’s just sooo cute lol
    i hope they firgure something out because i think he and kristen have the right kind of chemistry for the Bella/Jacob relationship and taylor seems sooo happy to be a part of these films

    If they take out Taylor i don’t think that Summit understands they’ll lose half of their fans.

    THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

    why would they replace someone after they already starred in the first installment of the series?!
    and what are the chances of finding an young, experienced, FULLY native american, male actor? slim.
    taylor is of native american descent and he’s been acting his whole life…plus, he suits jacob so well. why would they ever wanna replace him?
    okay, so he’s not like, seven feet tall…but there’s a thing called EDITING where you can make things different than they really are…the world seems to be pretty advanced when it comes to that and i’m doubtful that they can’t find any way to make him seem taller than everyone.
    if they replace taylor, i’ll be pissed and confused. whoever wants to do that at summit doesn’t know what they’re doing. they need to keep CONSISTENT with their films if it’s gonna be a series like twilight.

    UGH, they really aren’t going to replace them if they’re in their right state of mind. How are you going to replace an actor who’s a key character in the film. A lot of people will not go see it and plus it will confuse younger fans. Why not just keep it the same way. Plus it seems like Taylor has a lot of chemistry with Kristen Stewart and that’s going to translate onto camera as well. Stupid ass people if they replace him.
