Taylor Lautner Set To Become Highest-Paid Teen Actor

MTV has an article discussing how Taylor may be starring alongside Tom Cruise in a new film, which might make him the highest-paid teen actor in Hollywood.

Taylor Lautner’s got abs of gold. “New Moon” has reeled in $288 million in just seven weeks in theaters, making it the fifth-highest-grossing film of the year and climbing. Now the movie’s star is about to get paid. Big-time.

Lautner is set to earn $7.5 million for his next picture, according to a Deadline.com report, making him the highest-paid teen in Hollywood. The film, titled “Northern Lights,” will pair the 17-year-old with Tom Cruise. The plot is described as a story about “a gifted young aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling billionaire father and falls in love with a gifted female pilot.” Helmed by “Max Payne” director John Moore, the film is set to start shooting on April 1.

According to the Deadline.com story, young stars like Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus have not commanded a paycheck nearly as large as Lautner’s. And the “Twilight” werewolf might get even more cash for his future projects.

A December report in Variety indicated that “Breaking Dawn,” the final book in the “Twilight” saga, may be split into two films, which would force Summit Entertainment to reopen negotiations with Lautner and co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Based on the blockbuster success of “New Moon,” that would likely mean a monster raise for Lautner.
