Oprah crucified author James Frey and his "A Million Little Pieces" memoir for "fabricating large parts including details about his criminal record."
Now, the author is being embraced by Hollywood again for a novel he helped co-wrote with Jobie Hughes called "I Am Number 4."
DreamWorks has bought the rights to the book and has set Al Gough and Miles Millar to write the script.
"I Am Number 4" is the first in a six-book series and the movie adaptation is going to be produced and may be directed by "Transformers" director Michael Bay.
According to Variety, the plot is about:
"a group of nine aliens whose home planet is destroyed. They escape to Earth disguised as teenagers, and the title character discovers he and the others are still being hunted by the enemy that destroyed their planet."
