Paramount is planning the release of a movie adaptation of Max Steel, the toy line and animated series. And it’s been announced that Taylor Lautner (who plays as Jacob in the Twilight Saga) will have the lead role as Max Steel. The movie Max Steel will likely be released in 2011.
“A 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete has been accidentally exposed to the unleashed power of nanotechological machines, which became part of him and gave him increased strength, near-invulnerability and the ability to change his appearance. The young man now fights the enemies of peace as a super-powered secret agent.”
Some may think that Paramount just want to profit from Taylor Lautner’s celebrity to reach a wide public. Well, that’s true. But should rather see the movie Max Steel as a new reward for Taylor Lautner following his impressive efforts to bulk up for New Moon! And there is no denying that Taylor Lautner is damn fit for the role of Mad Max!
