Taylor Lautner Filming “Abduction” Movie

"Me and Taylor Lautner!! OMG" via @woahxcorri on Twitter

Taylor Lautner with fan @woahxcorri at Hamton High School in Pittsburgh Filming Abduction!

Have you seen the yellow ABX Productions signs around town? There’s a star in town. That’s right Twilight fanatics, Taylor Lautner, otherwise known as Jacob Black, is on location in Pittsburgh for the next two months. Filming starts today (July 12th) through September 22, 2010.

During the first day of shooting, Taylor and the film crew were working at Hampton High School in Allison Park (map). According to their website, the entire school is closed Monday, July 12 and Tuesday, July 13.  Hampton High must be pretty excited because the name of the school, the mascot, even their team fight song will all be included in the film. Out of the hundreds of people who waited all morning and afternoon to get a glimpse of the werewolf, Corri was the lucky one to have the stud’s face pressed up against hers for the lovely snapshot above.

Corri woahxcorri – Taylor Lautner filming a movie. On a motorcycle. 30 feet in front of me. He is FINE AS HELL. And 10x cuter in real life

If you thought fans were going psycho over Jake Gyllenhaal and Russell Crowe when they filmed in Pittsburgh, you ain’t seen nothing yet. We heard rumors of teenage girls sitting outside of Taylor’s temporary house at Virginia Manor in Mount Lebanon for hours. The casting call for extras was on June 30th and attracted nearly 2,000 people to CMU. Twilight fans are driving from all over the country in hopes to catch a glimpse. All of these are indicators that…

The celebrity stalking has definitely begun!

Emily Rizzo erizzox3 – Just touched taylor lautner and I’m dying. I got a pic with him kinda hahaha. Ahh.

Amber DarkAmberrr – OMG Taylor Lautner is IN Pittsburgh today & tomorrow filming a movie. Whyyyyyyy am I not home!!?? *jealous*

Ashlee Sophia McGill AshleexSoph – i wanna go to pittsburgh And find the set of Abduction and see taylor lautner;)

Danielle Banas daniellebanas – Eclipse made me more determined than ever to meet Taylor Lautner. Therere only 400,000 people in Pittsburgh. He cant be that hard to find…

Julie :) NeedMyStars – Im going to stalk taylor lautner while he is in pittsburgh ;)

JJElektric JJElektric – I don’t want to stalk Taylor Lautner while he’s in Pittsburgh, but will somebody PLEASE make sure he eats at Primanti’s while he’s here???

The movie is called Abduction and is directed by John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, Four Brothers). Part of the production team will include Taylor’s dad, Dan Lautner, who created a production company called Tailor Made Entertainment. Some of the other names you might recognize include Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, and Jason Isaacs. No word yet if these folks are in town with Taylor or not. Without spoiling the movie, here’s a brief plot synopsis:

A thriller centered on a young man (Taylor Lautner) who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website.

Although Taylor is a Detroit Red Wings fan (give him a break, that’s where he’s from), he seems to be enjoying Pittsburgh so far. On Saturday, July 3rd he had dinner at P.F. Changs in the Waterfront. After his meal, he stopped over at the Loews movie theater and popped in on a showing of the latest Twilight Saga episode, Eclipse.

      So Jealous of you fans in Pittsburgh! I’v always wanted to meet Taylor hear he is amazingly super sweet to all of his fans. I really love that about him!!!!!! Vask in the glory while you can! !!!!GO TEAM TAYLOR ;)!!!!

  • Katlyn

    I saw the ABX signs! Does anyone know where he will be hanging out? I heard he is really sweet to his fans.

    • Christina

      He down at the Waterfront last weekend but I doubt he would go back there. Then again, there’s nothing to do in Mount Lebo so he probably won’t be hanging out much there either. We all have to remember that he is here to work not play hehe.

    • lebo

      my friend said she saw him up town

    • http://anina@yahoo.com Anonymous123;)

      Me too! I really hope he is suuuuper sweet to his fans. Hope to meet him someday HUGE fan eeeeeeeek!!!! LOVE him 4Ever

  • Stacey Lolz

    Hey there’s nothing wrong with being a celebrity stalker! Just kidding. OMG he is hotness though.

  • PGH Filmer

    Taylor Lautner seems like a very nice guy but I don’t think he’ll be getting a Steelers “tramp stamp” like Jake did. On another note, the more movies in Pittsburgh the better.

    • http://BoringPittsburgh.com Boring Pittsburgh

      LOL you might be right, PGHFilmer, but we know one thing for sure… he definitely won’t be getting a Penguins tattoo.

      • lebo

        i wish he would

  • http://AbbyJean Jean Abby

    Hi, I heard they will be filming with Taylor somewhere on the Blvd of the Allies near Downtown or he was already, I’m not sure. By the way, I tried to comment earlier and it told me to “slow down”. I don’t know why.

    • http://BoringPittsburgh.com Boring Pittsburgh

      Hi Jean, there was an issue earlier but it is resolved now. Thanks for the email!

  • http://craigcarson Craig Carson

    Do you know if they are still looking for extras for any of the other filming dates?

    • Christina

      As far as I know, they are done looking for extras, at least for the Hampton High School scene. A lot of the kids that go to that school are going to be extras, like the band players. There’s always a chance they will need people for later shoot dates.

      • Stefany

        Are you sure they’re done looking for them?
        I sent in a headshot and resume and so did my friend but we haven’t gotten a call. It’s upsetting, but I’m not sure if they want us to play later parts or something…

      • Christina

        I think they are done with that scene because they are only scheduled to be there yesterday and today. Maybe you will get lucky and they will call you for other parts.

      • PGH Filmer

        Stefany: It’s standard practice not to call and tell you “no”. They don’t like to burn bridges. They might not need you, but they will hang on to your information just in case they do.

  • Steph Ludwig

    I was up there today but nothing much was going on. I really wanted to be an extra but didn’t make it to the auditions :(

  • Craig Carson

    Does any one know exactly what happens when you audition to be an extra?

    • Laura

      More important than the audition is that you actually fit the look they are searching for. As long as you fit the role, the whole ‘audition’ process is very quick. Go and fill out an online profile at mossercasting.com and they will contact you if they have anything they need you for. Good luck!

  • Julia

    I wish I can run into Taylor… <3

  • diane

    • http://bg Brian Gregory

      Virginia Manor is in Mount Lebanon. We haven’t had this much attention in Mt. Lebo in… uh… well, we never had this much attention here!

    I saw the ABX yellow signs this morning right where the merge is onto the Liberty Bridge from Arlington Avenue. That could mean they’re up on Mt. Washington . . .because if you go straight at the merge you go right up McCardle Roadway.
