John Singleton ("Boyz N the Hood," "Four Brothers") has signed on to direct Lionsgate's thriller feature titled "Abduction," which will star Taylor Lautner "Twilight film series."

Singleton will direct from script written by Shawn Christensen, which centers on a young man who finds a baby picture of himself on a missing persons website, and starting to realize that his parents are not his biological parents.

The Christensen's script caused a bidding war last month, with Lionsgate winning the bid with $1 million.

Gotham Group, Vertigo Entertainment and Lautner's Tailor Made are producing the thriller.

Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman of Gotham Group, Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo, and Tailor Made's Dan Lautner are co-producing, while Vertigo's Gabriel Mason executive producing.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in July in Pittsburgh.
