Shia LaBeouf

Well, this has been quite a fun game of musical chairs. Originally, back in April of 2010, Transformers star Shia LaBeouf was slated to lead The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. But then in 2011, there came word that Zac Efron had replaced the actor in the film written by Matt Drake (who also worked on Todd Phillips' party comedy Project X), was featured on the 2007 Black List. Now Variety reports LaBeouf is back on the project with commercial director Fredrik Bond at the helm of the gestating crime thriller about a normal guy who falls for a woman who happens to have a violent crime boss for a boyfriend.

However, Charlie keeps taking punches just to win over the girl of his dreams and keep her safe. It was the actor's schedule that kept him from following through with his original commitment, but now all is well for the actor to follow through with what is actually a passion project for LaBeouf. In addition, the project is no longer set up at Mandate Pictures, but now the film will be produced by Little Miss Sunshine producers Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa through their Bona Fide production banner along with Craig J. Flores (300) at Voltage. With a Black Listed script, I'm quite interested in seeing the film finally come to life.

Sounds interesting! I personally do like Shia LaBeouf sure he screams like a girl and he did kind of ruin Indiana for me but he has potential! Maybe thats just me!
