You’ll be able to watch the talented Shia LaBeouf this weekend in the film ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon,’ if you missed our post about this movie, you can check it out here. It looks really sweet.
And following that film, LaBeouf will release his passion project, Honey Boy. You’ve probably heard about this movie because Shia will be playing a version of his own abusive, alcoholic father.
Directed by Alma Har’el and written by LaBeouf, Noah Jupe and Lucas Hedges play the young and adult versions of LaBeouf, although the character’s name is Otis Lort. Otis’ dad is a former rodeo clown and felon, and the two live in a motel while trying to find acting gigs for Otis.
Believe it not, this movie has the potential to win some awards. In the early screenings, it has produced lots of tears in the audience. It could mark the start of Shia’s screenwriting career.
The first redband trailer was released today. You can check it out below. Honey Boy is scheduled to hit theaters November 8, 2019.
