Both guys are gorgeous, but do you think that Liam can really replace Taylor in his new movie Northern Lights?

David Ellison, the writer/producer/star of the upcoming movie Northern Lights, seems to think that Miley Cyrus‘ boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, can handle filling the shoes of the role Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner left behind. Liam is currently in talks to replace Taylor in the movie — and he may be hired for much cheaper, is reporting.

Taylor was originally set to make $7.5 million for his role in Northern Lights (which would have made him the highest paid teen actor in Hollywood) but now that the role is going to someone else, a much smaller salary is most likely to go with it. “It’s scaring some actors off because David has written himself a big role in the movie, which he’s also financing,” a source tells “What, you’re going to work for your co-star who doesn’t have a big body of work? I’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Filming has been delayed until another actor can be found (the start date was supposed to be April 1). So, it sounds like Liam might just be perfect as he isn’t expected to start shooting for his 3-D flick, Arabian Nights, until September.

We hope Liam can handle this new gig. He has some major shoes to fill replacing Mr. Sexy Lautner!
