Be on the lookout – Taylor Lautner is about to be kidnapped.

The "Twilight Saga" heartthrob is attached to star in the new thriller "Abduction," according to Variety.

The film, produced by Lionsgate, focuses on a young man (Lautner) who sees his own baby photo on a missing persons Web site. He is then thrust into a vast conspiracy and must go on the run to survive.

No release date has been announced yet.

It's just the latest project for Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the "Twilight" series.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the teen actor will star as the title character in "Stretch Armstrong" for Universal, and also in the title role for Paramount in "Max Steel."

Lautner will next be seen on the big screen when he reprises his role as Jacob in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," due in theaters on June 30, 2010.
