Bryan Singer: I wanted Taylor Lautner to star in X-Men: First Class
According to Blastr, the producer confirmed that Twilight star Lautner was approached to star in X-Men: First Class.
Singer, who has also worked on the hit TV series House and Valkyrie in the past, said: "I wanted Taylor to do it, I really did. He's doing a movie in Pittsburgh called Abduction and then he's got the next Twilight movie.
"We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn't look like it's possible to do it."
He added that he is looking forward to making Jack and the Giant Killer next year, which is set in the 1300s.
X Man: First Class, starring Alice Eve, Michael Fassbender, Jame McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence, is due to be released in 2011.
