alex_pettyferI 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”.
