While a lot of people love to slate the Twilight movies, you cannot deny that the franchise was a huge financial success, which also launched the careers of three young and promising stars. Once the last Twilight movie has been released, attention soon turned to the careers of these three stars and where they would go from there. The three stars we are talking about are obviously Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
While both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have gone on to prove that there is a lot more life left in their Hollywood careers, with a number of intriguing roles in some rather interesting projects, the career of Taylor Lautner has failed to kick off in the same way. We have seen Taylor in a few projects but nothing compared to what Robert and Kristen have been doing, and we're not sure his rumoured next project is all that impressive.
While everybody of a certain age would have been big fans of the Power Rangers franchise, it is fair to say that it was never really about the acting, which was simply awful at times. It has now been rumoured that Taylor Lautner is in talks to play the role of the Red Ranger in a brand new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie, which could be the beginning of a new franchise.
With Taylor Lautner's acting ability already being called into question after the Twilight movies, we are not sure that going back into another badly acted franchise would be the right move for his career. With that said, if it was done right with all the right people on board, you never know, we could have a new blockbuster with a new action hero on our hands.
