Kellan Lutz to play tattooed killer in ''Tatua''



Los Angeles, Nov 28 (PTI) "Twilight" star Kellan Lutz will star in Aaron Sims'' debut action film about a tattooed killer, who pulls weapons off his own skin.

The 27-year-old actor has signed up to star in the independent film as a man with a rare blood type, reported Deadline.

"Kellan was in the foreground and the background of the ''Twilight'' saga films, but he is a formidable physical presence and this is an opportunity for him to step up.
''Tatua'' at its heart is a cool, visually arresting origin story," said producer Rick Schwartz.

The storyline, adapted from the comic book by Paul Jenkins and Rob Prior, will kick off when the assassin''s son is kidnapped by one of his most dangerous targets and he goes on a violent revenge mission.

The inked-up killer must use his tattoo weapons quickly or they begin to dissolve and harm his own body.

Production is scheduled to begin next March in Toronto with a budget of USD 15 million.
