Appearing in a slew of upcoming films that range from "meh" to "yeah, okay maybe," Alex Pettyfer is rising through the ranks. And Dreamworks is aiming to really get his name out there with the biopic Shunt.

In the film, Pettyfer will harness the combined powers on Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen to ooze the charisma all over theater-goers. Shunt follows real-life Formula One racer James Hunt as he popularized the sport in the late '70's and banged some hot women. Sounds like it could be fun because, y'know, race cars... but I can't get passed the name "Shunt." Sounds like what you'd call the world's messiest shart. (Deadline)
