LABEUOF FALLS BACK INTO 'NECESSARY DEATH'
EXCLUSIVE: Shia LaBeouf is breathing life back into THE NECESSARY DEATH OF CHARLIE COUNTRYMAN, the actor’s long-gestating passion project that briefly had Zac Efron attached to star, Variety's Justin Kroll and Jeff Sneider report. The gritty pulp romance will find LaBeouf playing the title character, a normal guy who falls for a woman who has been claimed by a violent crime boss. Scheduling issues have kept LaBeouf from the project, which the TRANSFORMERS star initially joined back in April 2010. With LaBeouf’s calendar clearing, the actor decided to follow through with his original plan to star. LaBeouf next stars in John Hillcoat’s bootlegging drama THE WETTEST COUNTY and Robert Redford’s political thriller THE COMPANY YOU KEEP.
