Last we heard that Louis Leterrier, director of The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans, was circling a big screen adaptation of Brian K Vaughan‘s Y: The Last Man, but Warner Bros/New Line don’t know what to do with the property (Leterrier said in a later interview “I’d love to do it, but I need people to finance it, and the people financing it don’t know if it’s a TV show a movie, or what it should be.”)

If you haven’t yet read the series, pick up the paperback (or the new hardcover) of the first volume, as I very highly recommend it. You may recall that Eagle Eye/Disturbia director DJ Caruso was originally trying to get the film into production with actor Shia LaBeouf. Screenwriters Carl Ellsworth and Jeff Vintar contributed drafts, as did comic co-creator Vaughn, but in the end the project fell flat. Now DJ Caruso is speaking out about what went wrong. Hit the jump for details.

We’ve covered I Am Number Four quite a bit, in part because it was originally rumored as a directorial gig for Michael Bay. Then DJ Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) signed on, as did Sharlto Copley from District 9. Copely had to drop out and was replaced by Timothy Olyphant, and Alex Pettyfer took the title role.

Now there’s a trailer for the film, teasing the idea of a super-powered kid on the run. Read More »

Comic Con: I Am Number Four Viral Video

i-am-number-four-1

While I was sitting around waiting to get into the panel for The Goon on Friday, I noticed a little card with a printed QR barcode on one side and a shape that looked vaguely like the UbiSoft logo on the other. Then I remembered that I’d installed a barcode scanner on my phone, and found that scanning the code pointed me to a URL containing a little behind the scenes fluff video for DJ Caruso‘s I Am Number Four, which is currently in production.

Sharlto Copley

Earlier today it was reported that District 9 star Sharlto Copley was forced to drop out of the Michael Bay/Steven Spielberg-produced D.J. Caruso-directed adaptation of James Frey and Jobie Hughes‘s teen sci-fi alien book I Am Number Four due to “scheduling conflicts with his upcoming press obligations for Fox’s The A-Team.”

As we all know, “scheduling conflicts” is more often then not public relations coverup for some sort of behind the scenes problem, and this might be no exception.

The film adaptation of I Am Number Four, the first book in a sci-fi novel series co-authored by James Frey, became a big deal pretty fast. First it was because the film was rumored to be set up as a project for Michael Bay to produce and, possibly, direct.

Then DJ Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) was tapped to direct, with Bay and Steven Spielberg producing. Actors have steadily been added to the film, and now we’ve got one more: Dianna Agron, who has had insane exposure in the last year thanks to her role on Glee. Read More »

Teresa Palmer

Teresa Palmer has become the newest go-to good looking actress for geek film properties. The Australian actress had a small role in The Grudge 2, but had her big break in the Adam Sandler family comedy Bedtime Stories.
