Taylor Lautner not confirmed for Gus Van Sant’s boxer movie

Washington: Taylor Lautner has said that, contrary to rumours, he’s not yet confirmed for Gus Van Sant’s new movie.

The Hollywood Reporter had claimed on Wednesday that the Twilight star had been chosen to star in a boxing drama as a Russian boxer in an illegal Chinatown boxing club.

However, Lautner has told reporters that nothing has been finalised yet.

“It’s very premature. He is a very talented director who I’ve always looked up to and I’ve always wanted to work with,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling E!Online.
