First Look: Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan in Eagle Eye
Normally we're not one to post videos from Access Hollywood, but this was too good to pass up. Last June we announced that Shia LaBeouf and D.J. Caruso would be teaming up again for another movie after Disturbia. Caruso directed and Shia starred in Disturbia and now the two are working together again on a film titled Eagle Eye. The plot is about a young slacker and a single mom that get tangled up in a terrorist cell plotting a political assassination. Beyond that brief synopsis, we were only hearing bits and pieces about what the movie would actually be about. This first on-set video from Eagle Eye shows us a lot more - and damn does it actually look awesome!
The video comes from Access Hollywood (via WorstPreviews) and shows Eagle Eye's two stars, Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan, in a couple of scenes. If you're hesitant on watching it still, one of the scenes involves a couple of shotguns, the other involves a chase in the airport's luggage room.
Check out that car crash near the beginning, too! I'm amazed they're doing all of that practically. The rest of the video looked pretty incredible and now that we have a solid idea of what to expect, I'm very excited. At first I was thinking that Eagle Eye would be a milder "24", something involving confusion with a terrorist organization. But after Disturbia I knew that D.J. Caruso and Shia would deliver something awesome, I just wasn't sure what. Now this video certainly explains it and I'm very anxious to see what other scenes they've shot.
Eagle Eye is directed by D.J. Caruso of The Salton Sea, "The Shield", and Disturbia. The story was originally written by Steven Spielberg, but the script was put together by a handful of other screenwriters. Eagle Eye arrives in theaters on August 8th this year.
