Shia LaBeouf in talks to join Brad Pitt in David Ayer's WWII movie, Fury

100%

David Ayer's World War II movie FURY instantly sounded awesome when it was announced that Brad Pitt would star. Now, there is news that Shia LaBeouf may join Pitt and I can hear your Schmoe groans. After the news that LaBeouf may partner with Robert De Niro for SPY'S KID, many of you voiced a distinct dislike for the TRANSFORMERS star. Well, let the hate continue as Variety reporting on this news seems pretty concrete.

Here is the brief plot for FURY:

"1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five-man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army."

I have no qualms with Brad Pitt going back to war, especially if he brings a little Aldo Raine to the part. But, Ayer is promising this will be an "honest and visceral" combat film, so it won't be another INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. Personally, I don't have an issue with LaBeouf, especially if he gets to die a spectacular death. He redeemed himself for me with his role in LAWLESS, so I will give him a chance here.

FURY is slated to open on November 14, 2014.

shia's a good actor

i think people need to separate movies and actors. some movies may not be as good as hoped but that doesn't mean shia's not giving it his all. he's a hell of an actor with whatever he does. and very committed. even if you didn't like a particular transformer movie, you never questioned that when shia's on screen with one, that really nothing is there with him. the main thing about an actor is if he's believable and makes you forget you're watching a movie. shia excels at this.

I don't know what everyone's probably is with labouf. I grew up off his shit and I think he has great comedic timing. I haven't got around to see lawless but I've heard good things.

There are two Shia's...,.indie Shia and blockbuster Shia. The latter Shia is the poorer actor.

I have enjoyed him in A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Lawless, Disturbia, and Surf's Up. So who knows...maybe Ayer will get a good performance out of him.

LaBeouf

He was a very charming actor when he was younger. In the third and final season of Project Greenlight, you could see that charm every second he was on screen. Yet, since the second Transformers film, his off screen behavior has gotten very off putting. He is still a good actor but the baggage he's accumulating is becoming distracting to his work on screen. Hopefully, he'll go the DiCaprio route (focus on honing his craft and getting laid) and not the Lohan one (loosing his talent to the bottle

Hopefully, he'll go the DiCaprio route (focus on honing his craft and getting laid) and not the Lohan one (loosing his talent to the bottle and a courtroom celebrity). In any case; Yay! Cool Brad Pitt Movie!

I think LaBeouf is a fine actor. Its just he was once a child star, most child stars grow up with some crazy ego. He was great in Lawless, I suspect he will be good in this as well. Someone just needs to give the guy a stern lecture on his shit.

Why All The Hate

In his more adult roles, LaBeouf has proven to be very good. He's not great yet, but one day soon, he could be. I am 100% down for this movie with this cast.

Whatever, I mean DiCaprio gets accused of "overacting" too. I think both are better then they get credit for. For my money, LaBeouf has done a good job in all of the good roles he's gotten. Sure he's crap in Transformers 2 (and Transformers 3 and Eagle Eye) but you try to act in those movies. I'm down for this.

The thing with LaBeouf is that he's actually a pretty good actor but he's just trying to hard to "act". If you look at him in Lawless he looks he's gonna burst from overexertion.
