Curly haired, baby-faced actor Shia Labeouf must have the world's best agent. The omnipresent actor appears to be gobbling up most of the exciting, young lead male roles in Hollywood these days. The Transformers star has been tapped to appear in Universal's forthcoming techno thriller, Dark Fields.
Labeouf, whose lava-hot career is about the blaze even brighter, thanks to his upcoming role in the heavily anticipated summer "must see" event, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will play a man who uncovers a "smart pill" and the action will ensue from there. A smart pill? Sounds a little bit like The Matrix, doesn't it?
The film is based on Allen Glynn's 2002 novel of the same title, and will be directed by Neil Burger, who also lensed 2006's The Illusionist.
