After the success of I am Number Four on the big screen, its producers are gearing up for the film adaptation of its sequel: The Power of Six. Rumors about its imminent production are slowly spreading. There are barely any details but it is sure that you will have them soon. Just do not forget to check for updates and news so that when the heroes are ready for their adventure, you do not get left behind.
For those who are not familiar with The Power of Six, it is the second part of the Lorien Legacies Series. The book comes after I am Number Four, a popular teenage novel that was adapted into film. The series is written by Pittacus Lore.
I am Number Four made more than $145 million in the box office, giving enough grounds for Touchstone Pictures to do the sequel. The story of I am Number Four is centered on a 15-year old alien named John Smith and his troubles while he tries to escape the Mogadorians. The Mogadorians are another alien race that is responsible for the destruction of Smith's planet. The Mogadorians hunt the members of the Garde, the future leaders of Smith's planet where he also belongs. After successfully killing the first three members of the Garde, Smith decides go on the run.
The final events of I am Number Four sets the plot for The Power of Six. The sequel is narrated by John Smith and Marina who are both members of the Garde. Smith or Number Four, together with his company, stays ahead of the Mogadorians while remaining in search for other surviving Lorics (the inhabitants of his destroyed planet). On the other hand, Marina or Number Seven keeps on searching for news after Smith's battle in Ohio.
Number Seven is introduced right in the beginning of the story. She tells about her troubles adapting to her new planet and decides to hide and live in Santa Teresa orphanage. Number Seven is searching for the legendary Number Four and is aiming to reunite the Garde.
As the story moves forward, new characters will be introduced, and that means there will be new additions to the cast. I am Number Four stars Kevin Durand, Callan McAuliffe, Dianna Argon, Teresa Palmer, Timothy Olyphant and Alex Pettyfer. The film is produced by Michael Bay and is directed by D. J. Caruso. It is only reasonable to think that the same team that was responsible for the success of the first movie will stay to do the second film in the series.
Scriptwriter Marti Noxon announced on 16 May 2011 that the plans for the sequel have been shelved. It only means that the fans still have a long time to wait.
