Rising Star Turns Down 'Mortal Instruments' With his starring role in "I Am Number Four" in a few weeks, "Beastly" next month, and Andrew Niccol's "Now" later in the year Alex Pettyfer is swiftly becoming to the sub-genre of movies-that-Amazon-recommends-when-you-order-a-copy-of-"Twilight" what Tyler Perry is to films about African-American families. Among various projects the 20-year-old actor has percolating are a biopic of racing driver James Hunt, the young-adult-aimed "Jack the Giant Killer" and, as of a couple of weeks ago, Screen Gems' adaptation of the popular "Mortal Instruments" series by Cassandra Clare, in which Pettyfer was being aggressively courted to star in as a demon hunter, alongside "The Blind Side" star Lily Collins.
