You first saw Shia LeBeouf as a teenager on Disney's Even Stevens as Louis Stevens. He went on to find fame as a movie star thanks to his role 'Transformers' series, and in the recent phase of his career has taken to independent films arthouse cinema. Outside movies, Shia has been paparazzi fodder owing to his public antics. The actor has had a history of being erratic, being arrested on several occasions.
Putting the past behind him, LeBeouf brings his untamable energy to his most personal project yet. Yes, the actor has penned down a script based on his childhood experiences in which he deals with the personal loss of innocence and infamy while navigating a toxic relationship with his father.
Directed by Alma Har'el , Noah Jupe ( A Quiet Place) plays a younger reincarnation of the actor with Lucas Hedges ( Manchester By The Sea) portraying the adult version. Shia LeBeouf plays his father (of course he does) based on his actual dad who was an ex-rodeo clown and a felon. The film is a dark meditation on fame and an artist's self-discovery. Distributed by Amazon, Honey Boy will see the light of the day on November 8 this year.
