Taylor Lautner May Not Return to 'New Moon'

Latest report has suggested that Summit Entertainment will have to look for a new Jacob Black since Taylor Lautner won't reprise his role in 'Twilight' sequel, 'New Moon'.


Taylor Lautner May Not Return to 'New Moon'
See larger image

Despite "Twilight" success in digging gold at the box office upon its release, its sequel "New Moon" may lose one of its actors, Taylor Lautner. Entertainment Weekly (EW) reported that the actor who takes the role of Jacob Black in "Twilight" may not return to the sequel because Summit Entertainment won't rehire him.

On the possibility of Lautner not coming back to play Black, EW hinted that the reason of Summit unwillingness to bring Lautner back was because the studio consider the teenage actor to be too "young-looking and slight of frame to play the maturing werewolf". Still, the studio have yet to give out statement regarding the speculation.

EW has also reported that Summit are about to hire rumored director Chris Weitz. Despite strong denial of the signing in of Weitz from both Summit and Weitz's agency, the publication noted that sources claimed that the deal is imminent and that negotiations with other potential Moon directors have been stopped.

An adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's second novel in her Twilight series, "New Moon" will be penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are expected to reprise their roles as Edward and Bella, while the pre-production of this sequel has been slated to start on December 15 for a tentative release on November 20, 2009.

YOU'RE KIDDING RIGHT!?!!?? i would rather them get ride of freaking Kristen Stewert! She so not Bella! Her and Rob have NO chemistry whatsoever! and if you had ANY respect to the books you'd know that she's too MEAN to play Bella Swan. The first movie was so awkward. Taylor was probably the only character who would make everyone see the second. him and Rob.Of course Rob wont really be in it as much. but still

Oh my god. You guys are crazy. Who cares if he has a big nose? That's like his only flaw. I still think he's freaking adorable. He's definately a keeper. :]
posted by Britt on Jan 09, 2009
They can not get rid of him! Jacob is practically what the whole second book is about! And he's perfect for the role! I'll seriously cry if they get rid of him. Plus, he's soooo hot. :]

when i first heard this i was furious, then i kinda understood where they were coming from, because with all the effects it might look cheesy. then i switched back to fury. if i was a major character in the movie i would tell them i wouldnt be in it if taylor wasnt. i will not see this movie if they do this. neither will the true fans. they arent even giving him a chance, he could go to a gym, so mant actors have made a huge difference in their appearance for movies, why cant he? as for his face it isnt a problem, he looks old for his age and he has structered jaw like they describe in the books. summit will make a huge mistake if they do this. he is also a great actor. why would u want some 7 foot body builder towering over the other characters anyway? i just cant picture it. why would u cast him in the first place if u would just fire him? dont be dumbasses, taylor lautner comes to mind when u say jacob black. keep him or ruin all the movies.

They actually cast Jacob perfectly. Taylor is actually 2 years older than Jacob...Jacob is only 14 when he makes his appearance and described with Taylor's build - lanky, lean muscle. It is not until the second through fourth books that he grows in spurts. They also have to remember that these books were written through Bella's eyes, and if you re-read them, as long as he seems larger or larger than her, it fits the character. I agree, changing actors in the sequals is a horrific idea, and won't see the other two movies made. This is the decision making book - where you are either pro Jacob or pro Edward.

if summit and chris weitz decide to replace Taylor with Michael Copon, there'll be probably flying tomatoes at him aat the premier... just saying. this isn't smart AT ALL. taylor is working his ass off for the role and dedicated himself into reading the books to understand Jacob Black. And what has Mr. Twilight 2 (that's right, Michael Copon said that) done? read the first book and skimmed through cliff notes of the two next books while going around self promoting his ugly face... ahhh i feel better now :))

OMG summit is stupid they've already messed up tons of other things in twilight why do they have to go and mess Jacob up for us too! What is wrong with you people you'll screw up the whole series if u get rid of Taylor. These movies are supposed to be all about bringing these characters to life for the fans and if you get rid of Taylor tons of Jacob Fans would be devestated, and you would lose 90% of your Jacob Black fans!(including me!) If you replace Taylor Lautner in New Moon i refuse to see it thus you loose money! I hope you make the right choice!

posted by OBSESSED WITH EDWARD on Dec 16, 2008
Honestly Taylor can play the part better than anyone else, he's already established his fanbase and you will definately hurt the movie just because it's wrong to do this to him and people will fight for him. I heard they are thinking of Michael Copon and if anyone saw any of his acting they would know he should not be in this amazing movie bc he will RUIN it! He's horrible and extremely cocky and cheesy and especially since he thinks he should be posting information like this on his facebook before anything is confirmed, to me that is disgusting and so disrespectful and just for doing that everyone can see what kind of horrible, cocky person he is. He has the worst reputation out!!!ewww. Taylor can be transformed just like they made Brad Pitt young and old in his new movie, honestly this is Hollywood they can do anything they want! I say everyone boycot the film if they don't rehire Taylor.

posted by edward=perfect on Dec 15, 2008
i understand hat taylor looks too young but they should have thought about that before casting twilight. changing actors now is just going to lose money. look at jake Gyllenhal playing the price of persia and how much muscle he put on.. anyone can do it. dont change the characters now. its too late. everyone already has an image of jacob Black in their mind because of twilight and changing that now is just a bad idea

That would have to be the stupidest thing Summit could do. I don't think they realize how much damedge and disappointment it would cause the fans. They should really reconsider.

i totally agree that Taylor Lautner SHOULD be playing Jacob Black...i believe Summit's not playing it really cool...he's a great actor & I believe he can handle the character of Jacob very well...what are CGs for anyway? Totally disappointing!!!!
posted by Ericka on Dec 14, 2008
in my opinion, they would be making a mistake in changing characters. Many people won't watch the movie Others dont like having characters changed at all(im one of them) And just give it time teenagers dont stay young forever

Seriously if Summit replaces Taylor in New Moon, they are making a huge mistake!!!! This movie will not do nearly as well not to mention the rest of the sequel!!! New Moon will loose an enormous amount of fans!!!! What does summit think that this is some kind of circus series!?!!?! How is anyone supposed to take these movies seriously if they just keep switching the characters around!!!?? If they thought he didn't look mature enough then why did they hire Taylor to play Jacob in the first place???? I don't think summit is thinking clearly. All the sequels will be implicated negatively if they decide replace jacob.

And 'Grown up reader' who is clearly NOT grown up as shown by her rude comment 'Taylor was not attractive. Hello... nose job please!'. Uhm, where in the books did it say he had a perfect nose? Nobody's perfect, especially not you, you're immature and judgemental. Jacob is not based on a perfect nose dickhead.

I think droppinh taylor would be a big mistake. If he was such a bad choice why did you pick him in the first one? If he was a bad choice shouldnt you have noticed that in twilight? Its your fault, and we shouldnt have to suffer because of it.

what the heck is going on with Summit? Twilight is only a hit because WE the FANS make it successful. I'm Team Jacob all the way but seriously, Taylor IS Jacob, now and forever. of course Taylor looks like a kid, HE IS A KID. and so is Jacob. yes he's maturing but if they can make Rob Pattinson "sparkle" i'm sure there's some sort of make-up that makes Taylor look slightly older. i sure don't want to look at a 25 year old playing a 17 year old werewolf. Rob barely passes the 17 year mark. i will not spend a penny on New Moon if Taylor isn't in it.
posted by NotAnotherTwiHater on Dec 12, 2008
Ok, so New Moon is my FAVORITE book in the whole series, and honestly Taylor would really only make a good BEFORE Jacob. He is too tiny and far too young (he doesn't look 25) to be the AFTER Jacob. So honestly, I think they should have him in the first part of the movie and then like...find someone close to him that's older. Getting rid of him completely is a mistake, but so is keeping him for the whole movie...if you don't see that, then maybe you should re-read New Moon...and Eclipse...and pay attention this time.

If your a true fan of the BOOK you would understand why Taylor would not be a good choice for the changes that occur in New Moon. Any special effect they would HAVE to use would end up looking just as cheesy as Edward sparkling in the medow only Taylors cheesiness would last the entire movie and ruin it. So get over it people. Id opt for a better movie this time that relates to the book not commit to one actor whose playing the character we fell in love with in the story. geez PLEASE KEEP TAYLOR!!!

Summit, to me, are just being stupid. The fans of the books have already become accustomed to Taylor being Jacob Black. If they change Taylor then what's the point? They might as well trade Robert Pattinson aswell and throw in Kristen too. Actors shouldn't be changed about in sequeals thats the point of them, so we can see teh actors grow as they bring the characters to life. i say KEEP Taylor, he is perfect for the role and to most of the fans he IS Jacob Black.

Taylor is the best Jacob if he is not in the movie what was the point of putting him in the twilight movie. No one can do as good of a job as the on and only Taylor Luntner. I can go on and on but the point is that he is the best Jacob Black there could be.

it is a stupid on the part of Summit! if they replace Jacob, it will lose the entire effect. Fan all over the world established Taylor as Jacob and people have fallen in love with him(including myself). It won't work if they repalce him. People will be disappointed. Hasn't Summit seen the Lord Of The Rings? They just used a little bit of BRAINS adn technology and they pulled off many different effects, lke heights for example... nothing is impossible.. I guess Summit is just trying to make as cheap as possible, and to get more money in their pockets!! WELL I WON'T LET THEM!!! IF THERE IS SOME KIND OF PETITION PEOPLE, WE HAVE TO DO IT!!!!!!! KEEP ME UPDATED...

Thank goodness! He is cute and all, but if you want to capture a wider span of audience you need someone who the twenties and above can fall for, and Taylor is JAIL BAIT!!!! I totally think this is a smart move on Summit's part!

Taylor is the perfect Jacob, if they replace him I won't see the new films!!!

DAMMIT SUMMIT. WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU THINKING?! First Catherine, then Weitz, and now Taylor. Mistake after mistake. Taylor's the PERFECT Jacob. Look at that smile! He's perfect to play Bella's 'personal sun'!!! Plus, WE LOVE HIS BABY FACE! I'm so accustomed to Taylor playing Jacob that I seriously can't think of anyone else to play his part. ESP not Michael Copon. Ugh. PLEASE BRING MY TAYLOR BACK! :(

You can't change actors in sequels! That's against the unwritten rules!! Taylor is the perfect Jake!! No changing him!!

Taylor was not attractive. Hello... nose job please! There must be better options out there. He seemed too soft for the role.
posted by BARBIIE on Dec 12, 2008
They can not do that to us!! do they know SPECIAL EFFECTS????....everything is possible!! If they take Taylor out I wont see the film!!!... he is the PERFECT JACOB!!! WE WANT TAYLOR ON NEW MOON!!!
posted by Mrs. Lautner :) on Dec 12, 2008
OMFG NO. He is the PERFECT Jacob!!! Remove him, and I won't go see it. I really won't. I cannot picture anyone but him playing Jake. NO. Has no one ever heard of special effects?? Make him looks mature!!!!!!!! I am seriously pissed at this.
posted by hjmbn on Dec 12, 2008
please replace him! i hated him! hes too young, i completely agree! Jacob is suposed to be like 6` 7! and like really muscular and big. dont get me wrong i like taylor, just not here.

The ladies in my house have decided that if Taylor is replaced they will no long be interested in seeing the sequals, they will just stick with the books

SUMMIT!!! DO NOT REPLACE TAYLOR!!! You will regret this!!! Taylor really embraced Jacob's character. He is PERFECT for the part. Tons of fans will HATE Summit if they do this!!!
posted by Twilightfan on Dec 12, 2008
Taylor Lautner is PERFECT for this part you can't do this if there is going to be a new Jacob then it won't be New Moon because its a different actor!!!! it will be like a completly different movie!!! Taylor can't go!!!!

Okay. Now i am so freaking pissed that they even though of replacing Taylor Lautner. Are you kidding me. No one can ever replace him and it will totally loose like half the fans if they change one of the main characters. No one will ever have that perfect white teeth, perfect tanned skin, perfect smile. OMG i just love Taylor Lautner. WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY GONNA FIND A PACK OF NATIVE AMERICAN WEAR WOLVES. Before firing him they have to think. Also let syay they do find someone else [ Steven Straight]. How the hell is he gonna play the baby face Jacob in the beginning of the book. TAYLOR TAYLOR TAYLOR TAYLOR. NO OTHER DAMN WAY. ITS HAS TO BE TAYLOR. I DONT CARE IF HE'S SOO DAMN HOt. NO ONE CAN EVER REPLACE TAYLOR. Oh yeah and the only reason girls wanna watch New Moon is for Taylor Lautner. You ant just go and hire someone in acting, and then fire then for the sequel. He did NOTHING at all. I will be extremely pissed if they replace him. I will never watch the series again. There are computer to make him look bigger & such that. Hes not always a ware wolf. GOD ! I bet if they do change him, later on Summit Entertainment will regret it because it will loose many FANS. Like me! P.S. I don;t get it. Rosalie + Alice does not look anything close to their description in the book. Don't get me wrong or anything, i love them, but why replace Taylor Cause he doesn't meet standard. Why'd you hire him in the first place! I LOVE Taylor, and that will never ever change. &#9829;

Taylor lautner has to play Jacob if he does not only 2 people will see the movie and they will yell and burn it.
posted by luisacart on Dec 12, 2008
calm down guys! even though i'd hate to see taylor go, he really won't be able to pull off a 6'3 werewolf who's supposed to look 20-ish. it's to make New Moon a good movie!
posted by MyJacob on Dec 12, 2008
Obviously, this would upset many twilight fans. All I have to say, is that it would really suck it Taylor didn't show up. But I would get over it, in maybe a few days.

If they take Taylor out, I am NOT watching the effing movie!
posted by piinkyemo on Dec 12, 2008
it is absolutely unfathomeable that the studio would ever want to replace the best thing about the twilight series!!!!!!!! the remolval of taylor as jacob would cause extreme devasation among fans. the main intent for the movie is to please fans of the book, and in our minds, TAYLOR IS JACOB!!!!!!!!!!!

THEY SHOUDNT TAKE TAYLOT OUT!!!IF THEY DIDNT LIKE THEY SHOULD OF REALIZED THAT IN THE FIRST MOVIE..CHANGING AN ACTOR IN A SEQUEL IS STUPID, ESPECIALLY WHEN HES THE MAIN CHARACTER!THATS LIKE CHANGING ROB (WHICH I WOULD BE DEVISTATED IF THAT EVER HAPPENED)
posted by twilight1213 on Dec 12, 2008
How could they even think of replacing him??? This is his big movie!! If they change him now it'll be so terrible! You can't start off with one character and completely change him the next movie. People tell me he looks 20 and he's really 16!! So how is he too immature to play jake the werewolf??? (shapeshifter lol) Summit needs to sign Taylor back onto New Moon!!!!

Taylor is PERFECT for the part of Jacob! and i agree with everyone that said to keep him as Jacob! the diector is an idiot if he wants to change the part of Jacob i've read all 4 books and every time he comes up i think of Taylor and that he is SO PERFECT!

posted by el on Dec 12, 2008
this greedy rush for the next film leaves me concerned as to what quality the film will offer, or will it insult the book.
posted by True Twilight BOOK f on Dec 12, 2008
If your a true fan of the BOOK you would understand why Taylor would not be a good choice for the changes that occur in New Moon. Any special effect they would HAVE to use would end up looking just as cheesy as Edward sparkling in the medow only Taylors cheesiness would last the entire movie and ruin it. So get over it people. Id opt for a better movie this time that relates to the book not commit to one actor whose playing the character we fell in love with in the story. geez
posted by Eagleeyes8229 on Dec 12, 2008
I'm sorry but Summit Could not make a more idiotic move, they might as well make a whole freakin new movie that has nothing even to do with the book! If money is what they want they're pretty crazy to think thats going to bring it to them! I just really dont get it!
posted by Stephanie on Dec 12, 2008
Ohmygosh!!! Taylor Lautner MUST continue playing Jacob!!! He looked fabulous in twilight!!!! they can't change him now!!!!

DO NOT FIRE HIM!!! you guys will be making a BIG mistake many of the twilight fans like Taylor and if he doesnt return to play Jacob many of the fans will NOT return to see the movies. Taylor IS Jacob Black and i doubt that summit will find a better actor to play him! and Taylor is not "too young looking" people thought he was in his 20's! really summit needs to back off!
posted by kate on Dec 12, 2008
obviously, you can use SPECIAL EFFECTS. he can pass for 6'3 as long as the cameras are at the right angle.
posted by kate on Dec 12, 2008
NO. NONONONONONONONONONO. IF THEY DO NOT BRING BACK TAYLOR, SOMEONE WILL DIE. I WILL GO ON A MASS KILLING SPREE. THAT IS SO STUPID. THEY WILL LOSE SO MUCH MONEY FROM ANGRY FANS. I'LL CRY SO HARD, THE WHOLE EARTH WILL DROWN AND THEN THERE WILL BE NO NEW MOON AT ALL. HE DOESN'T LOOK TO YOUNG?!?!? HE'S SO PERFECT, EVERYONE KNOWS IT!

posted by PCX on Dec 12, 2008
Taylor is a mixed martial arts champion who is built like a brick sh!t house. Someone at the studio is a moron who just doesn't get it and wants to have some pumped up bulked up fake muscle actor instead of a real life athlete. It is ridiculous to think they would change because the fans will stay away from the next installment.

omgg summit is being wayyyyy too greedy! i would hate it if taylor lautner is not returning. >.>
