Twilight's wolf puppy Taylor Lautner is said to have inked a deal for $7.5 million to costar with Tom Cruise in Northern Lights, what critics call a tired pseudo-sequel to Top Gun. Lautner will play Cruise's son (snort).
This is said to be the highest paid U.S. teen actor (with barely any talent, other than a hot bod) fee in history. Lautner is already working on the action film Max Steele, based on... a toy (a few of which I own, but Hey, I saw them in a store in Italy and thought they were a uniquely Euro thing, plus he's hot for a toy).
Lautner was great in Lava Girl and Shark Boy, so hey, who knows? It might not suck.
Cruise is ... Well, I think Katie's contract is up, so he's gonna be available.
Frankly, I don't see the resemblance - to the toy or the Scientoligist.
Nevertheless, let the campy re-titling begin! (Cribbed from AV Club)
