I Am Number Four and Magic Mike star Alex Pettyfer is set to star in gay director Lee Daniels’ next film.
In an interview with Out Magazine, Daniels told the publication: “Alex Pettyfer is in it, [but] I have to find the right black guy opposite him”.
He continued: “He’s so hot, isn’t he? So hot. And so aware of his hotness in a way that’s so…I love him to death.”
Pettyfer is to play one half of an interracial gay couple in a Mr & Mrs Smith-style action movie (watch the nails). Daniels, who also directed Precious and The Paperboy, describes the film as “Mr and Mrs Smith but with two good-looking guys as the action heroes”.
