While shopping the upcoming thriller Abduction at Cannes, Lionsgate secured actor Alfred Molina in one of the film's two lead roles. The project is set to star The Twilight Saga's Taylor Lautner in one of his first turns at being a leading man outside of that franchise.

This news comes from Deadline New York, who tell us that the script, written by Shawna Christensen, will revolve around a young man (Lautner) who was kidnapped as a child and must go on the run upon learning who his real parents are. Molina has signed on to play the CIA agent in charge of tracking the young man down and bringing him back alive.
