Taylor has already won the hearts of thousands around the world playing one part of the Twilight love triangle as werewolf Jacob Black but his next move will see him transformed into an elasticated superhero.
Taylor has landed the lead in Stretch Armstrong, based on the best-selling Hasbro action-figure toy. Not only will Taylor be showing off his toned-to-perfection body in the new film he will also appear in 3D when it hits cinemas in 2012.
Stretch Armstrong will tell the story of an uptight spy who stumbles across a stretching formula, which he takes and must now adjust to, in everyday life and when fighting crime.
Donna Langley of Universal told E! Online: 'In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office. He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely superhero with a fantastic super power'.
We most definitely agree!
But before we get too excited about Strecth Armstrong, we have the hotly anticipated Twilight: Eclipse to look forward to when it hits UK cinemas at the end of June, 2010.
