Taylor Lautner Spotted With Gus Van Sant Again! More Proof He's Working With The Legendary Director?

Taylor must have a HUGE project in the works! Could it be ‘American Idiot?’

Taylor Lautner checked out Cirque du Soleil’s IRIS in Los Angeles this past weekend and was nice enough to tweet a photo with the cast. But it wasn’t the assortment of crazy colorful clowns that caught our eye. We’re more interested in who Taylor went to the show with — legendary director Gus Van Sant!

The last time Taylor, 19, and Gus, 59, were spotted out together, they were joined by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, 37, who’s developing the script for the big screen version of the Broadway musical American Idiot. We immediately began speculating that Taylor might be joining the rock musical — and for the record, we’d LOVE to see him do it!

Would YOU?

So many errors within this article [aka piece of crap] I just don’t know where to start….

First off, Tay doesn’t HAVE a Twitter, so how HE could have tweeted this pic, I don’t know… the original picture was in fact posted by IRIS and Cirque du Soliel’s Facebook page.

Second of all, Taylor is NOT starring in American Idiot. No one from his party has expressed evidence to this notion, and so anyone posting it is just jumping to conclusion, and making themselves look like idiots…pun not intended.

Thirdly, while it is possible that GVS and Tay MIGHT be working together, I can tell you that it will not be on a project that is confirmed, at the moment. If anything it’s something in the works but it’ll be by Taylor’s team and not from GVS himself. Remember Taylor does own his own production company now, and therefore supports other known talent in the industry, including directors. He could just be meeting with them in place of his team.

Fourthly, who says he can’t just hang out with these people? Why must Hollywood be forever under the idea that celebrities cannot be friends? Taylor was also seen out with a legendary director back in January of this year at a lunch thing, and yet no one speculated anything then because Collins was also with them. Instead it became a ‘Oh, he’s on a romantic date’ topic. [pauses to gag]; really, you guys need to stop posting these rumours without attaching verifiable FACTS. If not you just like every other dish rag out there that Taylor’s [and other celebrity's] fans use to line their pet’s litter boxes with.
