It looks like the Australian edition of GQ finally knows why Taylor Lautner and Gus Van Sant were having dinner together

. THR reports that the two will team up for an unknown indie based on a New Yorker article that Lautner himself optioned. Mysteries! Also: great career move, Tay-tay!

Per THR, Lautner is determined to only work top directors and writers in his quest to “define himself as an actor.” So far, so good. Both parts of ‘Breaking Dawn’ were directed by Bill Condon — Oscar nominated as a director for ‘Dreamgirls’ and a winner for Best Adapted Screenplay for ‘Gods & Monsters’ — and Van Sant is an Oscar nominee as well. Said Condon to Moviefone last week, “[Lautner] is as serious an actor as anybody I’ve ever worked with.” High praise considering he’s also worked with Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Sir Ian McKellan, Laura Linney and Liam Neeson among others.

This new project will reportedly be announced in full later this week; the idea is to get it in front of cameras sometime in the first quarter of 2012.
