Shia LaBeouf may play cops and robbers with The Road director John Hillcoat

08.12.2010

When Shia LaBeouf finishes his third time playing with Michael Bay's big noisy toys, he seems to have plenty of choices, including a couple of Tony Scott projects, and a "romantic action" story called THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN.

Perhaps more interesting, however, is a potential pairing with director John Hillcoat (THE ROAD, THE PROPOSITION). Shia and the filmmaker are considering TRIPLE NINE, a crime thriller and hot script from Matt Cooke.

According to The Wrap: "The story concerns a group of crooked cops planning a major heist who realize they must shoot one of their own in order to get away with it. The lead character is an upstanding young officer who they choose as their victim."

(999 is the police call code for officer requires urgent assistance.)

Kid Beefy and Hillcoat previously tried to team up on the Nick Cave-penned period crime tale THE PROMISED LAND (an adaptation of Matt Bondurant's novel "The Wettest County In The World"), but that apparently fell apart earlier in the year.

Extra Tidbit: I almost totally forgot Shia was in DUMB AND DUMBERER and CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE. Kid's come a long way...

I think he's a good actor, not great. I like the premise alot and think this is better suited for him then something like Wall Street 2.

Also, what happened to the movie with him and Ryan Gosling playing brothers stealing gin?

I hate the fact that every time someone hates on Shia they turn it around and say it's Indiana Jones fanboys. How about the fact that some people just don't like him as an actor? I don't like his acting style and I can't stand how he is the same character in every film he's made so far. That twitchy, fast-talking, smart-ass persona that he embodies in all of his movies is just annoying. I can never look at him and think of a character because all I see is Shia playing Shia. I personally

I personally think he's horribly miscast and should be working in comedies.. he'd fucking own in a round table discussion in an Apatow movie. People have booked him as the next Hanks because of the similar transition of their careers and I just don't see it.

So lay the fuck off the Indy IV comparisons as per why people don't like the kid.
