Beastly star Alex Pettyfer is an alien digit in I Am Number Four

03.31.2010

He's messing up his chiseled features for his US debut BEASTLY, and now dreamy JBF-haired Brit Alex Pettyfer will show his extraterrestrial side for the big-budget sci-fi/action movie I AM NUMBER FOUR.

Based on book by author James Frey (best known for the memoir "A Million Little Pieces" and for then getting evisceratead by Oprah for being a writer who fabricates stories), FOUR is about extraterrestrial humanoids trying to assimilate to high school life on Earth.

Obliterator Michael Bay and his TRANSFORMERS/Dreamworks cohort Steven Spielberg are producing, but DJ Caruso (DISTURBIA, EAGLE EYE) is set to direct.

The story, which sounds like TV's "Roswell" mixed with a hundred old comic books (it involves evil aliens who stripmine planets and good aliens who develop special powers in their teens), is being adapted by "Smallville" guys Al Gough and Miles Millar.

I AM NUMBER FOUR is the first of a planned six books, so if the first one is a smash, you know what we're in for.

Huge DJ Caruso fan, but this sounds iffy.

With that though, maybe I'm an idiot or something, but the hell does "JBF-haired" mean?

I was just gonna say that sounds like "Roswell." At least that show had Bill Sadler in it. Caruso might also do something unique with this. But it sounds on the surface like the sort of story I outgrew about five or ten years ago.

At least Stormbreaker was somewhat entertaining though.

Smallville is garbage and if they're behind this I want no part.

This could go either way. I like Caruso and the premise and Smallville, but I am not entirely sold yet. That guy's photo is not helping either.
