Taylor Lautner will be making more than $10 million per movie — and he gets to lock lips with one of these girls in his next movie. Taylor Swift — game on, girl.

Even though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may get more attention amongst the Twi-pack, Taylor Lautner is rolling in the really important stuff — cash. Deadline.com reports that Taylor is ready to score an eight-figure (north of $10 million) payday on each of his next two films.

Taylor has reportedly been cast to play Finn, a 17-year-old boy trapped in a prison world, in the 20th Century Fox film Incarceron, a Sci-fi flick based on the book by Catherine Fisher. Deadline.com reports that Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emma Watson are contenders to play the coveted role of Claudia Arlexis, the daughter of the Incarceron’s warden. Whoever gets that role will be one lucky girl!

Taylor’s next big role is to star and produce a yet-to-be named spy thriller, which Deadline.com reports will be similar to The Bourne Identity! Could Taylor be the next Matt Damon — he definitely has the body for it!

Don’t forget, he’s also filming Breaking Dawn and his next film Abduction, also starring his rumored girlfriend Lily Collins, which hits theaters Sept. 23 2011! Will Taylor become a bigger star that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? It’s definitely looking that way!
