Dreamworks Studios has released a few new stills for their upcoming action-thriller I Am Number Four. Michael Bay will be sidestepping his normal director role to serve as the film’s lead producer. The screenplay comes from Smallville showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar as well as Marti Noxon. This is one of the main projects Millar and Gough left Smallville (or rather stepped back from day-to-day showrunning) to focus on so we’ll be waiting to see how it stacks up under Bay’s production.
I Am Number Four is directed by D.J. Caruso and stars Alex Pettyfer (Now), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Teresa Palmer (Mad Max: Fury Road), Dianna Agron (Glee), Kevin Durand (Real Steel) and Callan McAuliffe (Resistance).
About I Am Number Four
Three are dead. Who is Number Four? D.J. Caruso (“Eagle Eye,” “Disturbia”) helms an action-packed thriller about an extraordinary teen, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer), who is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Timothy Olyphant), John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events—his first love (Dianna Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.
Log Line: John (Alex Pettyfer) is an extraordinary teen, masking his true identity and passing as a typical high school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed…he is Number Four.
