Sharlto Copley ('District 9') is in talks to star in an adaptation of a James Frey book. And no, its not the book you're thinking of.

According to Heat Vision, Copley may play the lead in 'I Am Number Four,' a young adult sci-fi flick based on a novel written by Jobie Hughes and the infamous fabricationist Frey.

The film -- which follows a crew of aliens who escape to earth from their home planet, only to assimilate into American high schools -- will star British actor Alex Pettyfer in the title role. Copley would play Pettyfer's adult mentor.
