(Aw, *another* love triangle? Poor T-Lauts.)
I was a little shocked to learn from E! Online’s unnamed source that Taylor Lautner and his vulgar nose *may* be starring in a remake of Vision Quest.
He could wind up playing an updated version of Matthew Modine’s character in the still-in-development film, which counts Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment (and Twilight and New Moon fame) as producers. We hear that Richard Munic has penned a screenplay that is “very faithful” to the original film. “Taylor saw [the script] and is really excited about it,” says a source. “It’s very much in line with his athleticism [and skates. -Ed.]“
But if you think about it, it makes sense. Why not go from putting the abs in abstinence parable to wearing a spandex singlet for 90 minutes? And the parallels don’t end there. Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer is Mormon –> Vision Quest star Matthew Modine’s uncle is Mormon. Taylor Lautner played an American Indian in Twilight –> “vision quest” is American Indian. Crap, I’m starting to sound like Glenn Beck. …Who’s also Mormon. (*head explodes*)
