Singleton, director of edgier, grittier films like “Boyz n the Hood” and “Hustle & Flow,” was considered the lead candidate over the past weeks, but now it’s official that he’ll helm the Lionsgate film.

In the film, Lautner stars as a teenager who finds his baby picture on a missing persons web site and discovers that his parents may not be his real parents. What follows sounds a lot like a Jason Bourne-style thriller — conspiracy, espionage and essentially running for his life.
