STARRING Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, and Dianna Agron
DIRECTED BY D.J. Caruso
Are superpowered teenage aliens the new vampires? I Am Number Four, an action flick that stars up-and-coming heartthrob Alex Pettyfer and Glee‘s Dianna Agron, certainly hopes so. Pettyfer plays the aforementioned alien (secret identity: John Smith, mild-mannered high school student), one of nine refugees from a distant planet. The movie’s based on a young adult novel by Jobie Hughes and James Frey — yes, that James Frey. Nice to see that he finally took the plunge into fiction writing, isn’t it?
