Sharlto Copley, of the District 9 fame, is vying to be a part of DreamWorks’ I Am Number Four. The adult science fiction book by Jobie Huges and James Frey is being adapted for the big screen by DreamWorks and has Alex Pettyfer in the leading role of Four. Copley is going to play the role of mentor and guardian to Alex Pettyfer (an alien who escapes from his home planet prior to its annihilation). The D.J. Caruso directed movie is being produced by Michael Bay and the screenplay has Miles Millar and Al Gough. The little known South African actor seems to have hit a jackpot!
