Michael Bay Goes SciFi June 29, 2009 Transformers director Michael Bay to produce/direct I am Number Four? Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen director Michael Bay is in talks to produce and possible direct “I Am Number Four,” the first of a six-book science fiction. The sci- fi franchise revolves around a group of nine earthbound alien teens who escaped their planet just before it was destroyed by a hostile species. While the high school-aged kids assimilate, the title character discovers that he is being hunted by the enemy that blew up his planet. It is expected that Steven Spielberg will be active in a behind-the-scenes capacity, similar to the role he has played in the “Transformers” franchise.
