Taylor Lautner in fantasy role

Taylor Lautner is set to take on a lead role as a prisoner

Taylor Lautner is to star in the big screen adaptation of young adult fantasy novel Incarceron.

The Twilight heartthrob will play the hero who escapes from incarceration after living his entire life in a futuristic prison, rescuing the warden's daughter and taking her with him, Deadline reports.

Taylor will star as Finn, who has lived his entire life on Incarceron, a savage, futuristic prison society in Fox's big screen version of Catherine Fisher's book.

He meets the daughter of the warden, who is trapped in her own prison, a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like the 17th Century.

She and Finn simultaneously find a crystal key that allows them to communicate and hatch an escape plan for Finn.

Taylor, 18, is tipped to become a producer on the project.

Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who were involved in writing Brett Ratner's ensemble comedy Tower Heist are adapting the book into a screenplay.

Taylor, famous for playing werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight Saga, adapted from Stephenie Meyer's hit young adult books, is currently shooting the final instalment in the series, Breaking Dawn, which will be shown in two parts.

He is also due to appear in thriller Abduction, directed by John Singleton.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
