Mattel, having made the artistic decision to move forward with the live-action film franchise Max Steel, which has nothing to do with either Real Steel or Max Payne, has decided to remove Taylor Lautner from the project. Lautner had been attached since as early as 2009, but the fact that his post-Twilight career has been weak (Abduction?) and other films made by another guy named Taylor (Battleship, John Carter) didn’t do very well, then there’s the whole matter of Taylor Swift, whose career is still thriving, but, let’s face it, there’s an expiration date on all those faux-empowering breakup songs, means that the producers of Max Steel would probably be better served going after most anyone else.

Taylor Lautner Gives ‘Max Steel’ The Hand http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/taylor-lautner-gives-max-steel-the-hand/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/taylor-lautner-gives-max-steel-the-hand/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Taylor Lautner has too many toys in his sandbox. After yanking both Mattel's Max Steel and Hasbro's Stretch Armstrong away from his peers while screaming, "Mine!", his Hollywood parents told him to make a decision. Lautner decided on Stretch, throwing Max back to the less fortunate, uglier, smellier kids to fight over.   An insider who carries Lautner's bag of wet wipes and binkies told Vulture, "When you sign on to make a movie with Hasbro, you know it will be in theaters a year later." Well said, overbearing Hollywood stagemother. I would assume Lautner would want to play a sweet futuristic character like Max Steel over a man with skin issues, but maybe he has opposing thoughts about what is cool. Or daddy demanded he abide by his decision or get the belt again.
