Taylor Lautner back as Jacob Black in Twilight sequel New Moon

Taylor Lautner will be back to morph into the monstrous Jacob Black in the Twilight sequel New Moon.

Taylor Lautner will be back to morph into the monstrous Jacob Black in the "Twilight" sequel "New Moon."

There had been talk that a bigger, buffer, more menacing actor might play the role when the second of Stephenie Meyer's hugely successful vampire novels hits movie screens come November 20. Lautner, by comparison, appears lean and sweet-faced in part one.

Distributor Summit Entertainment and director Chris Weitz confirm that Lautner would be returning.

Stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will also be returning as the saga's doomed young lovers, high schooler Bella Swan and brooding vampire Edward Cullen.

Catherine Hardwicke's "Twilight" opened at No. 1 with a whopping $69.6 million at the box office in November, the biggest opening ever for a female director.

It has since grossed about $177 million in the U.S.
