D.J. Caruso (Taking Lives, Disturbia, Eagle Eye) is directing the adaptation of the first book (not even published yet) in a young-adult sci-fi series by James Frey and Jobie Hughes. “I Am Number Four” will be produced by Michael Bay. 

“Four” revolves around a group of nine aliens who escaped their home planet just before it was annihilated by a rival species. Hiding out on Earth, the title character disguises himself as a human high schooler, only to discover he is being hunted still by his planet’s enemy. [THR]

A teenaged alien movie from the Taking Lives guy, the “Million Little Pieces” guy, and Michael “robots with balls” Bay?  I’m so excited in a completely genuine way! I can’t wait to get Number Four all up in my eyes! *drops to the floor and starts doing the Curly run*
