Marti Noxon - I Am Number Four Sequel 'Shelved'

Plans for an 'I Am Number Four' sequel have been "shelved".

Screenwriter Marti Noxon believes a follow-on from the first instalment of the movie - which starred 'Glee' actress Dianna Agron, Alex Pettyfer and Timothy Olyphant -have been put on hold "for now".

She told Collider.com: "I think that that's on the back burner. The last I heard, they were shelving that idea for now. But, you never know. Sometimes the afterlife of movies burns brightly. They can certainly bring it back.

"But, right now, I don't think there's any immediate plans. My only real regret about that is that Number Six was really awesome and I would have liked to have seen a lot more of her. We need another kick-ass girl heroine."

Marti - executive producer of season six of TV series 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' - continued her vampire-themed work by writing the screenplay for forthcoming film 'Fright Night', which stars Colin Farrell, David Tennant and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

The movie - which is based on the 1980s original - tells the story of a teenager (Anton Yelchin) who tries to take down his neighbour (Colin Farrell) after finding out he is a vampire responsible for a number of deaths.

Marti added: "I really liked the relationships between the characters in the original. I felt like there was a lot to explore there, and I liked that the tone of the original had comedy in it. I thought, for whatever reason, that it just felt right."

The DVD of 'I Am Number Four' - which made $144 million worldwide on its release - is released on June 20.

they should really unshelve the sequel becuase unlike the usual circumstance the sequel will most likely bring in more viewers and positive reviews and also they really left the audience wanting more including me obviously

What's the problem Hollywood. After all of the crap you've been shoving at us like Spiderman and more. What is the problem is running a quality series like this. Stop the HATE, unshelve the movie.

What is this bull? They should definatly make a second film. There is a pettition on change.org for this, and a lot of people would quite happily watch a good film like this. If they stick to the books and give the movie a bigger budget then it could be really successful, so why shelve such a promising oppertunity. I thought that I knew some idiots. If they do it properly this time they could do well. Just give it a chance...
