Though he was set to earn $7.5 million to star in David Ellison's Northern Lights, Taylor Lautner has dropped out of the project, and Miley Cyrus' boyfriend Liam Hemsworth is now considering the role.
According to Deadline Hollywood Daily, Lautner would have been the highest paid teen in Hollywood had he signed on for the role, and Hemsworth may not be banking that much, but it seems as though he will get a fairly substantial chunk of change if he agrees to do it.
The film is about four young pilots in an extreme flying competition, and though this seems like a huge pay day, DHD reports that it's scared off several young actors "because David has written himself a big role in the movie which he's also financing." A source close to the flick adds, "What, you're going to work for your co-star who doesnâ€™t have a big body of work? I've never seen anything like this before."
Think Miley's man will do it?
Even if it flops, it sounds like he might still get a 7 figure salary for it!
