Taylor Lautner will reportedly pocket a whopping 7.5 million dollars for his next movie, making him currently Hollywood's highest paid teen actor.
The 17-year-old Twilight heartthrob - who won the breakout male actor gong at last night's People's Choice Awards - will pick up the tidy sum for action movie Northern Lights, according to Deadline.com.
The movie apparently follows a young aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling dad, although it's not clear who Taylor would be playing.
Production is set to begin in April.
It has been claimed that Taylor's salary will make him the movie world's highest paid teenager of all time, however Usmagazine.com reports that other young stars, including Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, have received bigger sums for film roles.
