More About Michael Bay’s I am Number Four
More news from Michael Bay’s upcoming movie “I am Number Four”, which he will produce along with Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks, and possibly direct, though that’s not a given, especially with all the loud rumblings about a “Transformers 3″ coming in less than two years. We already know the film will be about alien teens who hide out on Earth after their planet is destroyed, but what else?
Expands FilmDrunk (who can be a little saucy at times, and probably more than a little NSFW):
The protagonist is 15. The rival race of aliens are from the planet Mogadore. They destroyed Lorien in order to strip the planet of its natural resources because Mogadore was dying, and still is, and they followed the Loric to Earth to finish the job. The Loric develop their “Legacies” (special powers) around their fifteenth year. This first book is a kind of love story. At its core it’s a type of father/son alone in the world, always moving to stay alive story, a lá The Road.
The film will be based on the first in a planned 6-book series written for young adults.
