I have it on good authority that Dreamworks is in negotiations with relative unknown Alex Pettyfer to star in I Am Number Four, the Michael-Bay-produced, DJ-Caruso-directed, James-Frey-written, aliens-in-high-school movie. I also hear that the studio wants Kevin Bacon or Gary Oldman to play the father, but haven’t made any offers yet. This was the original Variety description:
“The story is about a group of nine children from a planet called Lorien who have been attacked by a hostile race from another planet. The nine and their guardians evacuate to earth, where three are killed. The protagonist, a Lorien boy named John Smith, hides in Paradise, Ohio, as a human and tries to evade his predators.” [Variety]
I know this probably wasn’t the most interesting story, I just thought that if I knew something other people didn’t I should make a big deal about it, because bloggers are supposed to do that. In any case, I apologize. Please accept this picture of Abe Lincoln with a boombox as a token of my appreciation. In related news, I want to adopt this puppy and name it “Alex Prettyfur”.
