Bay Lines Up New Teen Sci-fi Franchise

TRANSFORMERS director MICHAEL BAY has lined up his next sci-fi franchise - based on a collection of novels written by controversial author JAMES FREY.
Bay's production company has picked up the rights to I Am Number Four, the first in a series of six books about nine aliens who escape to earth before their planet is destroyed.
The movie, which has potential to turn into a multi-part series, follows one particular alien who takes the form of a high school student.
Frey, who co-wrote the tales with Jobie Hughes, found fame and controversy back in 2006 when his best-selling 'memoir' A Million Little Pieces was accused of being fabricated.
Oprah Winfrey promoted the book - supposedly a tale of Frey's battle with drug addiction - on her TV show, helping it become a huge hit, only to criticise the author on air when it was exposed as a fraud.
