Lee Daniels Wants Gay A Interracial Action Film Starring Alex Pettyfer

Director Lee Daniels, according to a new interview with Out magazine, is clearly out to blow all our minds.

Questioned on his next project, after his critically-lauded Lee Daniels' The Butler, starring Forrest Whittaker and Oprah Winfrey, Daniels revealed

that he's developing an "interracial love affair action movie" with an interracial gay couple. According to Daniels, think of it as a gay "Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but the two good-looking guys as the action heroes." The twist? "We don't find out they're gay until the end of the movie," he explains.

He went on to reveal that, "Alex Pettyfer is in it, [but] I have to find the right black guy opposite him. 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."



But WHO is hot enough to play Mr. Smith to Pettyfer's ...Mr. Smith? Our trashy friends at Queerty have a pretty decent rundown of suggestions who could, er, fill the bill, including Pacific Rim's delicious GQ coverman Idris Elba and Anthony Mackie, Marvel's new onscreen Falcon.
