Eric Champnella and Grant Thompson's action spec script, "Cancun," is being retooled by Summit Entertainment into a starring vehicle for "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner, says The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the site: The project is acting as starring vehicle for Lautner and is the first project from the newly established production company he shares with his dad, Dan Lautner.

The story follows an out-of-place college kid who travels with a girl to Cancun on a break. While there, the girl and her friends are taken hostage by a drug cartel and he is forced to save them. The action will be designed to take advantage of Lautner's extensive martial arts skills.

The premise of the film actually sounds like a pretty good action flick. As for Lautner playing ‘an out of place college kid’? I'm not sure if he fits that part of the equation, but it won’t matter since his performance mostly will about beating up bad guys rather than acting anyway.

‘New Moon’ fans everywhere rejoice.
