Taylor Lautner to Possibly Fight The Rock?
Are Taylor Lautner and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson getting all biblical on us?! The wrestler-turned-actor and the Twilight hunk are rumored to be starring in Goliath, a retelling of the story of Philistine warrior Goliath and his battle against David, an everyman who must take him down in order to save his people, reports BET.
Apparently the two have been offered the biblical figures’ roles and it’s just a matter of time whether they will accept or decline them. The Rock is in advanced talks about the project while Tay-Tay is supposedly close to signing on for the film, which is produced by his Twilight bosses Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. Sounds like Taylor just may HAVE to be a part of the project now!
…Or not. Both Taylor and The Rock command $10 million in asking prices, depending on the project, so like David’s slingshot to Goliath’s head, the talks could end just as quick before formal negotiations even begin, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie company Relativity is eyeing other casting options if the deals with Taylor and The Rock go south.
Would you like to see Taylor Lautner and The Rock as David and Goliath? If they both decline the roles, who would you cast as David and Goliath?
