Taylor Lautner will reprise his role as Jacob Black in the Twilight movie sequel, New Moon.

"My experience on Twilight was wonderful and I am looking forward to continuing on with the team for New Moon," Lautner told "I have been working hard preparing for the physicality that this role will require and can't wait to get started with the filming of New Moon."

"I'm very happy that Taylor will be playing Jacob Black in New Moon and that he's doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit, the producers and Stephenie Meyer," said Weitz at the studio. "The characters in Stephenie's books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part."

In New Moon, which will be released domestically November 20, 2009, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

Production on New Moon is scheduled to begin in the coming months and the studio is planning to release the film on November 20th 2009.
