The man who will turn Taylor Lautner into an action star has been found.

Variety reports that John Singleton ('Four Brothers') will direct Lionsgate's 'Bourne'-style action thriller 'Abduction.' The film will star 'Twilight' heartthrob Lautner as a young man who enters a world of adventure and intrigue after he discovers his own baby picture on a missing persons Web site.

The spec script, written by Shawn Christensen and based on an idea by Jeremy Bell, had several studios engaged in a bidding war last month, with Lionsgate finally emerging as the winner. Lautner's own production company, Tailor Made, will co-produce with Gotham Group and Vertigo, with shooting to commence in Pittsburgh in July.
