In the comics he was called Sexton Furnival; and that Death, or Didi as she calls herself in her mortal form, has snagged the interest of one famous young actress in particular. The Death hunt is done, if the deal works out, and soon she’ll be named.
Start Motion Pictures has set 28 Weeks Later helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to direct and Shia LaBeouf (pictured; Constantine, Transformers, Disturbia) to star in Villain.
The psychological thriller is written by RoboCop remake scribe Josh Zetumer, says Deadline. Details are vague, but the film “follows two brothers who mysteriously re-connect in an unforgiving wilderness.”
The role of the other brother will be set shortly.
Start Motion Pictures Ben Browning, Sarah Shepard and Jeremy Kipp Walker will produce, and Michael Maher will executive produce with Zetumer.
The desire for money and power is too much temptation for
almost all some people, especially in Hollywood.
I can’t even remember the last time a star turned his back on the studio system, which is what makes THR‘s interview with Shia LaBeouf so darn special.
LaBeouf, who quickly rose to stardom after various supporting roles including Constantine and I, Robot, before entering the world of Steven Spielberg with DreamWorks’ Disturbia, has officially turned his back on the studio system.
He’s left behind the piles of money and stardom for the sake of creative freedom (not to say an indie feature can’t provide the aforementioned).

Sigur Rós is a “love ‘em or hate ‘em” kind of band. Their songs are often very slow and, in a way, uneventful. However, another way to look at them is that they are reflections of our own emotions. We’re not going to experience radical changes from one second to the next (well, this sometimes happens, but it’s not the average). Rather, we dwell in our emotions, let them wash over us and take as long as they need in order to leave or dissipate. That’s how I personally view the band.
Another trademark of the band is that they release incredibly heavy music videos, ones that require afterthought and empathy. And nothing has changed with “Fjögur Píanó”, their newest video, which comes from their latest album Valtari. Rather, this might be one of their most obscure videos yet. Starring Shia Labeouf (who does full frontal nudity in this video) and Denna Thomsen, the video is an artistic view of a failing relationship (my opinion). Beautifully shot but also quite confusing, you can watch the NSFW video below.
Note: You have to be logged into YouTube and older than 18 in order to watch the video. READ MORE
We’ve got a very special Halloween treat that comes courtesy of Shia LaBeouf, who has been dabbling in directing over the past year. This summer he took the reigns on Marilyn Manson’s new video “Born Villain”, and now he’s given Bloody Disgusting an exclusive look at “Maniac”, his short film starring both Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) and Chris Palko.
In the short a film crew follows two serial killers documenting their exploits. You can watch it over at the Bloody Disgusting Facebook. It’s very reminiscent of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
Music and Score provided by Scott Mescudi amd Dot Da Genius. The short is a Grassy Slope & Ragin4Dayz Production in Association with Dilated Pixels. Executive Produced by Scott Mescudi & Shia LaBeouf. Produced by Jeff Balis, T.J. Sakasegawa, Rhoades Rader. READ MORE
Marilyn Manson has dubbed his upcoming album Born Villain. Considering that was the name of the song released yesterday, I don’t think many people are surprised by this. He also posted on his official website a short blurb detailing the work that he has done with actor Shia LaBeouf:
While it’s been out for a while that Shia LaBeouf would be directing a documentary following Marilyn Manson during the recording of the upcoming new album, I didn’t realize that LaBeouf would be handling other aspects as well. After the jump, you can watch a video for Born Villain, which LaBeouf says draws heavily from Shakespeare’s Macbeth as well as the famous short film by Salvador Dali, Un Chien Andalou (courtesy MTV.com).
Shia LaBeouf (Transformers, Disturbia) is attached to star in Mandalay Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of Joe Hill’s best-selling novel Horns, and will also be closely involved in the project’s development, reports Variety.
Keith Bunin (In Treatment) is adapting the book, which is described as a love story driven by horror and vengeance.
“LaBeouf will play Ig Perrish, a 26-year-old who awakens from a black-out hangover to find horns sprouting from his head. As his horns grow bigger, Ig sets out to investigate the unsolved murder of his girlfriend and the case’s connection to his cursed fate.”
Hill, the son of Stephen King, will exec produce “Horns,” having optioned the rights to Mandalay in October 2009 before the book was published by William Morrow. He also write the mind-bending comic series “Locke & Key”, which is being filmed as a pilot as we speak.
LaBeouf plays a teen serving a home-detention sentence. He begins to observe a neighbor and suspects the man is a serial killer. Morse plays the suspected murderer.
Based on the DC/Vertigo comic book Hellblazer and written by Kevin Brodbin, Mark Bomback and Frank Capello, “Constantine” tells the story of irreverent supernatural detective John Constantine (Reeves), who has literally been to hell and back. When Constantine teams up with skeptical policewoman Angela Dodson (Weisz) to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister (also played by Weisz), their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles. Caught in a catastrophic series of otherworldy events, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost.
