LaBeouf Burger next?

09.18.2008

It was sounding more and more like kid superstar Shia LaBeouf would follow TRANSFORMERS 2 by reuniting with his DISTURBIA and EAGLE EYE director DJ Caruso for the adaptation of the post-apocalyptic epic comic series Y: THE LAST MAN.

But now it seems like Young Beefy might be having a big brain instead. Coming Soon talked to director Neil Burger (THE ILLUSIONIST), who says he'll work together with Shia this winter on DARK FIELDS.

The Universal sci-fi thriller, based on the Alan Glynn novel (and adapted by Leslie Dixon of HAIRSPRAY and the needless remake of Hitchcock's THE BIRDS), involves a guy who gets addicted to a designer drug described as "Viagra for the brain". But while it makes him smarter, faster and more charming, negative side effects develop and he beings to investigate the frightening origins of the drug (spoiler: it's the milk of Spielberg!).

Burger's post-Iraq War dramedy THE LUCKY ONES opens next week. Shia is still working with giant robots (to be added in post).

Extra Tidbit: Burger also directed the admirable conspiracy faux-documentary INTERVIEW WITH THE ASSASSIN.

So is he still doing the Y: Last
Man movie? I think he looks the part, he's the right age and he can act. Get him a monkey and its a done deal. This Dark Fields movie sounds like A Scanner Darkly. Both are about drugs and have dark in the title. I'll check it out, I like Shia.

well, aparently Shia wasnt too stoked about the proposed Y: The Last Man role, not saying he hates it, just that he wasnt flipping head over heels in excitement. besides, i dont really like Shia for the main role in that movie. i just dont think he fits the character at all but whatever...

Well, I personally was looking forward to the long hoped for sequel to Good Burger.

Cheeseburgers that make you smarter and more charming...

...assuming the drinking and drug use don't kill the kid before shooting begins.
