Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, pictured, has found a new potential franchise to sink his teeth into. Deadline reports that Lutz has signed to star in the indie genre film Tatua.
Based on an original concept by comic book creators Paul Jenkins and Rob Prior, “Tatua” is about a man with a rare blood type that allows him to be tattooed with a powerful ink. He is able to pull those weapons straight off his skin, giving him an enviable leg up as a covert assassin. Aaron Sims, the vfx wiz who helmed the viral sensation short “Archetype,” watch it below, is set to make his directing debut on the film, says Rick Schwartz, whose Overnight Productions has lined up the financing for a March production start in Toronto.
Paul Layden wrote the script, and Schwartz will produce with Todd Breau and Kari Hollend. Schwartz’s producing credits include the upcoming Machete Kills, Black Swan, The Departed and The Others.
