[movieperson id=”373803″]Taylor Lautner[/movieperson] has thrown himself into boxing and fight training in the last few months. He’s learning to work movie magic on a motorcycle. And he’s likely going to have to jump into a pool and figure out how to swim like an action hero . That’s just what it’s going to take to slip into his starring role in “Abduction,” a flick that’s being compared to the Jason Bourne films.
And it’s a good thing he’s committed himself so fully, because as co-star Mario Bello told MTV News , the movie will be nothing short of hardcore.
“It’s an incredible script. It really is,” she told us at the red-carpet premiere of “Grown Ups.” “John Singleton is directing. I’m so happy to be a part of it. It’s going to be a badass movie.”
The story follows Lautner as a kid who, thanks to a visit to a missing-persons website, discovers that he has actually been abducted and the parents who raised him are not his flesh and blood. Jason Isaacs plays his faux-dad, while Bello is his faux-mom.
“Do I look like Taylor’s mom?” she asked.
Judging by the look she was rocking the red carpet — a form-fitting blue dress and short, sun-kissed blonde locks — Bello should have no problem convincing audiences that she could have birthed a good-looking kid like Lautner.
“He is such a gorgeous guy,” she said.
But, of course, in the film it turns out that she’s not his real mother. And when Lautner makes that discovery, he’s thrust into a run-and-gun-style thriller. Lautner himself has clearly been training hard for the requirements of “Abduction,” but what about Bello? Might we see her kick a little ass on the big screen?
“You never know?” she said. “You’ll have to see the movie!”
