Some call it the Twilight for boys. I call it a possibly awesome movie. Also, can't believe I haven't read the book yet... Will put it up in my list, right now reading Matched after this one will read I Am Number Four.
When I saw that they were making a movie out of this book my first thought was, is Hollywood running out of creative minds? It's not that its bad they are making a movie out of the book, just that, well, they have been doing a lot of that lately havent they? Other than this, awesome!!!
The guy in the trailer... oh zombie jesus! I love him a little. I think HE would make a great Peeta, he is MY Peeta!! kinda, sorta... Anyways other than the guy (his name is Alex Pettyfer) there is a girl (obdiously) and is none other than Glee's Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray, the blond cheerleader who is pretty awesome). Sounds interesting, doesnt it? Oh yeah.
Pretty good casting, and even better trailer. Here it is...
"DreamWorks Pictures has bought film rights to the series, with no less than Michael Bay, the director of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” signed on to produce and possibly direct the first installment, according to a DreamWorks spokesman. “Transformers” broke a box office record on its opening day Wednesday.A manuscript of the first book in the series has been circulating among editors at several large New York publishing houses. In a cover letter, Eric Simonoff, a literary agent at William Morris Endeavor, says the series is a collaboration between an unnamed New York Times best-selling author and a young up-and-coming writer.
The story of “I Am Number Four” is about a group of nine alien teenagers on a planet called Lorien, which is 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, disguised as a human, trying to evade his predators and knowing he is next on their list. "
And here is another video explaining Number Four's origin:
