Taylor Lautner set to star in 'Incarceron'

"Twilight" star Taylor Lautner is gearing up to play another hero from a young-adult novel. The actor is set to star in the big-screen adaptation of Catherine Fisher's 2007 sci-fi adventure "Incarceron," reports Deadline.com.

Lautner will play Finn, a 17-year-old who has lived his entire life in the futurist prison society Incarceron. With the help of a crystal key, he can communicate with the warden's daughter, Claudia, who is trapped in a castle in a world resembling the 17th century. Both Finn and Claudia long to escape and vow to help each other.

Besides "Incarceron," Lautner, 18, has plenty of other projects in the pipeline.

The final two chapters of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" will arrive in theaters on November 18, 2011, and November 16, 2012, respectively, and the thriller "Abduction" is set for release next September. In addition, Lautner is also attached to portray Stretch Armstrong in a movie about the popular children's toy.

      How can you pass such judgements? Have you read this book before or are you just going based off what the description of the story is? Also keep in mind that while you might not like that style of movie, others might. Let us also keep in mind that the movie has yet to be made, which means you cannot draw a difinitive conclusion about whether or not it will be good based solely on a three paragraph article.

      The kid has the personality of an ironing board. That alone is reason enough to pass judgement.
