New Moon star Taylor Lautner is in talks to take the lead in Paramount's Max Steel.
It will be the latest in a line of toy adaptations heading for the big screen following on from the success of Transformers.
No doubt there would be plenty of opportunity for Lautner to remove his shirt in the Action-Man like story.
Lautner would play Josh McGrath, an extreme sports enthusiast who gains various superpowers after being accidentally exposed to 'nano technology'.
Studio execs are hoping that canny casting could result in an action flick that draws as many ladies as men to the multiplex. The former Sharkboy has certainly come a long way.
