The Power of Six From a Book to a Movie

Updated on December 21, 2012

Get Ready for The Power of Six

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. As for the question when is the film's release date or when the trailer will be released, nobody can answer that for now. Keep track of the latest news about this film online. All that is left to do is to wait until the producers are ready to bring The Power of Six movie into life. The Power of Six trailer will be here as soon as it will be available, until then we let you enjoy I am number four trailer.

      Despite what a ton of people say, The Power of Six is actually my favorite (tied with the first) book of the series. But if they did make a movie I wouldn't watch it because 1) after the first movie I wouldn't want them to ruin it like that 2) it's simply too personal to watch someone else's idea of the book.

      The books are amazing... I have listened to the audio books by checking them out from my local library via their android app. I think these films would have much greater luck now that the main character has played in the movie Magic Mike alongside of Channing Tatum. I hope they consider this & get it going asap! :)

      I hope so bad there will be more movies in the Lorien series. Visually the Power of Six would be amazing. The only problem is unlike all the other popular book series made to movies this was released beforethe books had a big following. The second book came out after the movie. Whereas hunger games, twilight and now diveregent all had a huge book following by the time the movies hit theaters. And now us fans who are invested and have read the fourth book The Fall Of Five want the movies to continue but the actors have moved on and didn't sign up for more then 1 movie cause at the time there was only 1 book

      It would be such a disappointment to not make a sequel it's a good series and the movie was good...they could've added a good 20-30mins extra to the movie yo explain more details or set up more for the sequel but that's something to think about for the next has amazing potential but they need to promote way more ! I didn't know about I am number 4 till its weekend release PROMOTE

      A Power of Six movie will not happens. I Am Number Four simply out did not make enough money and the series does not have as big a fan base as we'd like to think. The fan base for the Lorien Legacies series is dismal. I live the series but honestly, a movie is just not going to happen. If Dreamworks gets the ball rolling now, and all the actors cancel there plans then it will be 2016 at the earliest we see a sequel. And by then the actors will be far too old. Do we really want a re-hash of Percy Jackson? Be content to wait for the fall of five and subsequent bills

      I've been hoping they make a sequel. 2years is a bit of a wait, but I'm sure it will be worth it! I barely go to the cinemas, but for this one, I definitely would! It'd be such a treat! XD

      There just doesn't seem to be any plans for a "Power of Six" movie at this time. If you look at the imdb website and do various searches with regards to the actors in the "I Am Number Four" movie, many of them have movies coming out in 2014 and beyond but no mention of a "Power of Six" movie. That is sad because I loved the first movie. Young actors like this do get older and the more years that pass, without any word, make a sequel less likely assuming that many of these people would hopefully reprise their roles.

      So, because there is so much time spent on pre and post production on movies, it would still take a couple of years for the movie to get produced, shot, and released. Assuming something might happen this year, it would probably be 2015 at the earliest that this movie would see the light of day. They really need to get moving on this!!

      I thought that The Power of Six was a horrible book, book personally i don't think a lot actually happens. I think a film of it would be a disaster! Pittacus Lore let me down because I loved the first book and film. :(

      I thought the I Am Number Four movie was fantastic and everyone I know who has seen the movie really liked it as well. Unfortunately, I Am Number Four was not the box office hit that Dreamworks hoped it would be, only making a little over $55 million in the US box office. Dreamworks was hoping for box office numbers, certainly over $100 million US, and I believe they were hoping for a movie series in the vein of the Twilight movies in box office dollars. I Am Number Four did not deliver so the second movie was shelved. As with Disney's John Carter, Dreamworks marketing failed to draw movie goers into the theaters for some reason. As with John Carter, where was the promotional tie in with a food chain like McDonalds or something similar. These types of movie tie ins could have made the difference in the success of movies like I Am Number Four and John Carter.

      I, more than anything, would love to see a "The Power of Six" movie. I would like to think that many people who have now seen the movie via movie rentals or purchasing the DVD or Blu-Ray, would now flock to "The Power of Six" movie if released. I have the Blu-Ray and love it!!

      Hopefully, a decision to move forward comes soon, as many of the main characters in this movie are relatively young actors and time marches on. Dreamworks, lets get moving on this!! Please!

      I LOVED the first two books, and the Movie I AM NUMBER FOUR. Can not wait for the third book and I'm hoping they make two more movies!!! I would definitely count down to their release dates. Same casting would be great through all three movies if they do it. Here's to hoping!
