While it might sound like a pathetic effort to boast “X-Men: First Class” by involving “Twilight” cast, Bryan Singer has revealed that he
did want to bring Taylor Lautner to the mutant universe. On Sunday, July
18, the filmmaker addressed rumor which mentioned that 20th Century Fox
checked the actor’s availability to take a role in the upcoming movie.
“I wanted Taylor Lautner to do it, I really did,” Bryan said in an interview with Blastr in a church in Hollywood. “He’s doing a movie in
Pittsburgh called ‘Abduction’ and then he’s got the next ‘Twilight’
movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to
make it work.” At the end, however, Taylor will not join “First Class”
as the producer added, “It just doesn’t look like it’s possible to do
He would have been perfect for this movie. But Abduction will be great as well!
