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.
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!

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.
