The fast-paced thriller sees the teen star seeking to uncover his true identity after he discovers a baby photograph of himself on a missing persons website.
Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello and Sigourney Weaver star in Abduction, which is directed by John Singleton.
Collins, the daughter of musician Phil Collins, promised that the film will be a shock to fans of the Twilight actor.
"[He is] very Jason Bourne-esque, of course with his own twist on it," she said. "It's a complete departure from Jacob… It's not about him taking his shirt off, this movie. There's a lot more that I think makes up for that. That's not to say that there's not some steamy moments in the movie."
Abduction opens in UK cinemas on September 28.
