LaBeouf's new project with Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner will involve him spending a month living alone in a log cabin in Finland.
Following the troubles surrounding his controversial art installation designed to protest Donald Trump’s administration, Shia LaBeouf is planning something a lot more low-key for his next art project – by exiling himself entirely.
For the next month, the actor-turned-performance artist will be living completely by himself in a log cabin in the remote Lapland region of Finland, with his only form of communication with the outside world coming via text messages to visitors of a museum in the country’s capital city, Helsinki.
The project is entitled #ALONETOGETHER, and is being undertaken with his art collective colleagues Luke Turner and Nastja Ronkko. Having begun on Wednesday (April 12th), the trio will be living in separate cabins in Finland, according to the Associated Press.

LaBeouf's new war movie 'Man Down' suffered a rather ignoble fate, with just one person paying to see it on its British opening weekend.
As if the constant misfortune that has been surrounding his anti-Donald Trump art installation wasn’t enough, Shia LaBeouf’s reputation has taken another hit with the news that his latest war movie, Man Down, took just £7 at the British box offices last weekend.
That’s right – the single-figure sum made by the film means that just one person paid to see Man Down over the weekend.

'He Will Not Divide Us' has set up in a new location for a third time, following repeated safety concerns and disruption in America.
Having endured a troubled start to life, Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ has re-located from America altogether because of safety concerns, finding a new home in Liverpool.
The project is now to be housed at the British city’s Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) Gallery, after events in New York and Albuquerque showed “that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist”, according to a new statement from the Hollywood star’s artistic group LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner.
The installation was originally located on a wall outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, and debuted back on January 20th, the day of the controversial Trump’s inauguration as president.

The actor's 'He Will Not Divide Us' installation has been shut down for a second time, having relocated from New York to Albuquerque.
Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Donald Trump art installation has been shut down for a second time in less than two weeks, on this occasion over public safety issues after gunshots were allegedly fired in the area.
The increasingly eccentric 30 year old actor set up the #HeWillNotDivideUs at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, on the day of Trumps’ inauguration as president back in January. However, it quickly became a focal point for trouble as pro- and anti-Trump protestors were increasingly coming to blows.

LaBeouf's latest venture with Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner has been shut down by the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City.
For the past three weeks since President Trump was inaugurated back on January 20th, a permanent livestream outside the museum in Queens encouraged participants to stand in front of a camera and say the words ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ for as long as they want.
It was the latest real-life art project launched by LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, which has engaged in headline-grabbing stunts since 2014. However, it has now been closed by the Moving Image for reasons of “ongoing public safety” issues.

LaBeouf was reportedly arrested and then charged with assault and harassment following an altercation with a Trump supporter at the installation in New York.
Shia LaBeouf has reportedly been arrested and charged with assault and harassment at the site of his permanent protest against the new president Donald Trump this week, in circumstances that are not particularly clear.
The 30 year old actor, who has been in the headlines more frequently for his series of life-as-art projects than his actual movies in recent years, was handcuffed and led away by police on Wednesday evening (January 25th).
Reportedly, this happened a few hours after a 13-second video was released of LaBeouf shoving a man who addressed the camera with the words ‘Hitler did nothing wrong’, which was seen on the Twitter feed for #HeWillNotDivideUs, the name of LaBeouf’s permanent art installation in Queens, New York City.

The actor is becoming one of Hollywood's most likable.
We've felt for a few months now that Shia LaBeouf is really turning things around for himself. He's no longer the booze-swigging, plagiarizing attention-seeker that he was back in 2014, he's developed into an altruistic artist with a strong moral compass, and he's someone to learn from.
Shia LaBeouf is turning things around this year
Many people rolled their eyes when he appeared to shade Steven Spielberg in an interview with Variety back in September, but that's nothing when you consider what the rest of his confessional told us about him. Since he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at Broadway's 'Cabaret' in 2014, he has given up alcohol.

The actor has freestyled his way into Sway's heart.
If you're one of those people who find Shia LaBeouf perpetually annoying, prepare to reluctantly like him a little from now on. He appeared on the radio show Sway's Universe and delivered one of the most kickass freestyles we've ever heard from a non-professional rapper.
Shia LaBeouf has got a mean flow
The 'American Honey' star proved he had a mean flow when Sway Calloway challenged him to a freestyle session in a special edition of the show's popular segment '5 Fingers of Death', with beats provided by Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Missy Elliott.

The couple's wedding was streamed live on TMZ, but not at their request.
Appearing on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, Shia confirmed that the wedding was for real, and not one of the bizarre performance art pieces he’s become known for in recent years.

The couple appeared to have wed and live-streamed the ceremony.
On Monday evening TMZ shared a livestream video feed of what appeared to show Shia and Mia tying the knot.
Star is fed up with her current way of life; she's a teenager with her whole life ahead of her and no prospects coming her way in her current hometown. Setting out on the road, Star begins to have ideas about hitchhiking away from her troubled life and is approached by Jake, a carefree guy who travels state to state selling magazine subscriptions.
Jake isn't alone, he journeys with a team of fellow youth whom are part of a 'mag crew', who like Star, are running away from home for one reason or another. Jake tells Star about the crew and what they do; he tells her how the crew go door to door selling magazines whilst also exploring America and partying at night. This 'a business opportunity' is too good for Star to resist.
Speaking with Krystal, the only proviso for joining the crew seems to be that if she has no one to miss her, she's good to join. Life on the road begins as Jake explained, the small gang sells hard during the day and drink and party just as hard at night.

The actor ended up with 12 new tattoos in total after filming the road trip movie.
Shia LaBeouf says he was 'peer pressured' into getting two tattoos of hip-hop star Missy Elliott during the filming of new movie American Honey. The actor said that during the making of the road trip movie the cast would frequently visit the local tattoo parlours, leaving him with 12 new inkings in total.
Shia LaBeouf now has two tattoos of Missy Elliott
“One of the things we’d do as a group, we’d all go to the f***ing tattoo shop,” LaBeouf told Variety. The frequent visits meant he ended up getting 12 tattoos during the filming, which drove director Andrea Arnold crazy because she didn’t want him showing up looking different in every scene.
The #TAKEMEANYWHERE project will see him tweet GPS co-ordinates and go wherever drivers take him.
Shia LaBeouf is at it again with another unique and slightly strange real-life art project, this time aiming to hitchhike across America using Twitter.
The 29 year old is teaming up once more with his collaborators Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner, along with Vice, to see where his adventures take him. He and his companions set off from Boulder, Colorado on May 23rd and, for one month, will go wherever anybody who wants to pick them up takes them.

The film will centre around the Wimbledon Men's Singles Final match in the 1980s
Controversial actor Shia LaBeouf has recently confirmed his intention to take on his ballsiest role yet - as tempestuous US tennis star John McEnroe in a new film set around the memorable 1980 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final.

The movie's 100% Rotten Tomatoes score overshadows the actor's scene-making behaviour.
Lars Von Trier's controversial new movie Nymphomaniac has gone down a storm with critics after having premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. However, cast member Shia LaBeouf, who has been doing a lot of bizarre things recently in the name of performance art, drew unnecessary attention to himself by walking out of the press conference and appearing with a paper bag on his head on the red carpet.
That There, That's Shia LaBeouf...Promise!
After being asked about the movie's explicit sex scenes, of which apparently there are many, Shia quoted footballer Eric Cantona's famous 1995 line: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea" before making his exit, according to BBC News. He later appeared on the red carpet for the premiere screening wearing a brown paper bag with the words "I am not famous anymore" written on it with two eye holes.
Shia's paper bag might not be his weirdest moment ever.
Shia LaBeouf managed to out do even himself in the bizarre stakes yesterday, by storming out of the press conference for Nymphomaniac after quoting Eric Cantona and then appearing at the premiere with a paper bag over his head with I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" written across it. Crazy stuff but this is all what we've come to expect from Shia who’s created his own Beouf-ometer of weirdness in recent years with these 5 moments alone:
Shia LaBeouf - with a bag on his head.
1. Dropping acid for a role.
For his role in Charlie Countryman, Shia dropped acid in front of several cast and crew members including Ron Weasley, I mean Rupert Grint. Grint later described how LaBeouf “smashed the place up, got naked and kept seeing this owl,” wow, however if the owl was Pigwidgeon it’s understandable.
2. The Sigur Rós video
Shia starred in the video for Icelandic band Sigur Rós’ single 'Fjögur Píanó', where his performance inclduing doing some weird interpretive dancing and then stripping off, unsurprisingly the video became a viral hit. Warning NSFW:

Shia LaBeouf made sure he earned his latest film Nymphomaniac plenty of publicity, though it may not even need it.

The actor's latest appearance was just a little bit more bizarre than usual.
Given Shia LaBeouf’s recent antics, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the man is a bit... err… eccentric. He’s also very self aware though, just take a look at his outfit for the “Nymphomaniac Volume I” premiere at the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival.
Even if he isn't famous, LaBeouf can always rely on his fashion choices to make a stir.
LaBeouf’s look included a sharp black tux, white shirt and a brown paper bag. Say what you will about LaBeouf, but he obviously knows how to make a statement. In this case, he made it in black marker on the paper bag on his head. The message read: “I am not famous anymore.” – a statement he has been tweeting repeatedly since January 13, as USA Today notes.

Seems like the actor's retirement threat was an empty one
Shia LaBeouf’s antics over the past year have been attributed to a wider ideal: a performance art piece produced with the help of several other artists. Whether that’s true or not, the mercurial actor claimed he was retiring ‘from public life’ – a claim that has just been confirmed as boohocky with the announcement of his role in Rock The Kasbah. (Casbah? Some say K, some say C)
Shia LaBeouf doing some sort of work - proper work
LaBeouf – who made his name as a child-star in Even Stevens, and enjoyed a successful turn in Holes - will star alongside Bill Murray in Barry Levinson's Rock the Kasbah. Bruce Willis, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride and Zooey Deschanel also share the screen. Brian Grazer and Tom Freston are stepping in to exec produce Kasbah, while QED International will be looking for buyers at Berlin's upcoming European Film Market.
The actor's bizarre actions recently were all stunts as part of a project, apparently.
Shia LaBeouf has pulled what is known nowadays in showbusiness as a "Joaquin Phoenix," whereby one goes undercover, creating a series of provocative stunts to make the media believe that one's marbles have truly been lost then claiming it was all for art. The actor confused fans recently with a string of bizarre and out-of-the-blue incidents which included ripping off artist Daniel Clowes' work, apologising via a sky-writer, and a string of weird tweets over-apologising for his actions.
Shia LaBeouf Has Lifted The Lid On His Bizarre Actions Of Late.
Many probably assumed that LaBeouf, the former child star of Even Stevens, had simply gone off the rails a bit, as the Macaulay Culkins of the world have done before him. The media scratched its collective head and decided to laugh about the Transformer star's weird happenings. The chain of incidents seemingly ended a few weeks back with LaBeouf announcing that he was "retiring from all public life" after all the negative attention he was receiving.
Shia LeBeouf apologises again on twitter, but claims his recent strange behaviour was all part of a project: "My Twitter @thecampaignbook is meta-modernist performance art."
But the 27 year-old has really out done himself with his latest bizarre tweets.
LaBeouf was surrounded by controversy back in December (2013) after he was accused of plagiarising the work of graphic novelist Daniel Clowes in his short film 'Howard Cantour.com'.

Shia gets up to some stupid stuff
For a man who’s recently decided to retire from public life, Shia LaBeouf is sure lingering in the public eye. He’s walking around London headbutting people willy-nilly, and let’s not forget; he’s starring in two pretty high profile movies this year.
Shia LaBeouf picking up some stuff from the hardware store, something he's deeply sorry for
He’s not quite reached Justin Bieber’s inordinate displays of stupidity, but his recent behavior has gained him more enemies that friends. Here’s a little rundown of Shia’s most idiotic moments, and yes, his recent headbutt makes the cut.
Shia LaBeouf is not starting out 2014 in the right way. First he was accused of plagiarism, and now he is being accused of assaulting a man. Is Shia headed downhill?
Uh oh, it appears that Shia LaBeouf may be going a little Lindsay Lohan on us. The actor seems to be on a downward spiral after being accused of plagiarizing his newest film. And when he apologized for that plagiarizing, he was accused of plagiarizing that apology.

Since then, he has acted out, in public and on Twitter, and now he was reportedly in a pub fight in London.

The actor takes a step back after a string of bizarre incidents. What on Earth is going on?
Shia LaBeouf has announced that he is "retiring from all public life" after a year of crazy incidents has reached breaking point. It has been a rather strange year for the 27 year-old Even Stevens actor who has branched out into directing. Ready to head down the rabbit hole?
Shia LaBeouf Announces He's Retiring From Public Life.
The L.A-born actor was left red-faced after it emerged that he'd persistently plagiarised other peoples' work, most notably that of graphic novelist Daniel Clowes, and then plagiarised his apology for stealing Clowes' work.
Shia Lebeouf reveals that he had to send a photograph of his penis to the production team to land the role of 'Jerome' in Lars Von Trier' controversial film 'Nymphomaniac'.
The 27 year-old must have desired to be in the film as he accepted a very bizarre request from the production team before being cast.
LeBeouf sent director Lars Von Trier a photograph of his penis.
[NSFW] Lars Von Trier is at it again.
The full-length trailer has finally been released for the Lars Von Trier two-part erotic drama, Nymphomaniac. The Danish director has teased for months with promotional posters for the movie showing cast members' faces in the throes of sexual pleasure.
Written and directed by the somewhat infamously controversial Von Trier ('Antichrist,' 'Melancholia'), the film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg as Joe, a woman found beaten in an alley by Stellan Skarsgard's Seligman. Joe attends group therapy sessions after self-diagnosing as a nymphomaniac; a sex addict. Seligman looks after Joe and she tells him her life story, including her sexual experiences.
'Selfie' is the Oxford English Dictionary 'Word of the Year' - and here's why
2013 is the year of the 'selfie,' the Oxford English Dictionary reckons at least, as the word used to describe a self-shot photograph has been named as the word of the year by the established dictionary authority. According to the Oxford English Dictionary web page, the decision to adopt selfie as word of the year was a " unanimous" decision, noting a 17,000 per cent increase in the usage of the word over the past 12 months.
Mariah Carey is one star who has helped boost the 'selfie' craze
The powers at the Oxford English Dictionary have gone on to chart the rise of the word selfie, tracing its origins to a 2002 ABC Online forum posting. The word experts noted the wider use of the word in 2003 and its adoption into common usage by 2012, but it isn't until 2013 that selfie has become worthy of the Word of the Year title. It beat such buzzwords as 'bitcin,' 'showrunning' and the ever popular 'twerk' to emerge victorious, but what is it that has made 2013 the year of the selfie?

LeBeouf's reputation just took ANOTHER nosedive. It's difficult.
Shia LaBeouf is an egg. That basically means he’s a bit silly, which we’re pretty sure we can say without being sued. But just in case: Shia LaBeouf is NOT silly. He is however, an idiot. He’s in a really bad film called Charlie Countryman, and to prepare for said bad film, he took the wrong drug.
Shia LaBeouf looking sullen in Charlie Countryman - don't read the reviews mate
Charlie Countryman has amassed 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty bad. But it’s not the worst film ol’ LaBeouf has ever done. The Holes actor has some pretty shoddy scores on the review aggregator site. Countryman is below his average of 50% (of the 22 films with ratings, that is).
Probably not the best way to market your movie to a U.K audience...
Remembrance Sunday is primarily a day to mourn, commemorate and celebrate the efforts of solders in World War I, but that doesn’t totally excuse Brad Pitt and his WWII film Fury for filming Nazi scenes on November 11th.
Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf film scenes for 'Fury.'
David Ayer is probably facing the biggest backlash; filming for his WWII tank epic kicked off at 4am this morning, with gunshots, explosions and a hundred extras dressed as both allied and Nazi forces rampaged through fields. And it’s not as though he wasn’t warned: emotional pleas to delay the filming during remembrance Sunday fell of deaf ears as Ayer pushed on with his schedule.

When Charlie Countryman boarded a plane to Bucharest in Romania after a hallucination of his late mother told him to, it became both the best and worst decision he'd ever make. He becomes embroiled in the life of a middle-aged man who dies beside him on the flight and is forced to meet his daughter; a strikingly beautiful cellist named Gabi; with whom he sets out to uncover the mysteries he left behind. Along the way he meets her party-loving friends who welcome him with open arms and he finds himself falling increasingly in love with her. However, things take a turn for the worst when her crime boss husband Nigel shows up on her doorstep with no intention of letting Charlie take her off his hands. Charlie can do nothing but fiercely protect his lover, but to do that, he is forced to lay down his life.

The actor shared a screen shot from his upcoming movie to promote the upcoming rom-com-action
Shia LaBeouf isn't scared to show a little (or a lot) of skin, as he has shown with his increasingly sordid roles. After baring all for the Sigur Rós' music video for the song 'Fjögur Píanó,' before stripping off completely and getting steamy for the screen with his Nymphomaniac co-stars, Shia this time took to Twitter to flash his bits.
Charlie Countryman comes out next month
Sharing an image from his upcoming film, the rom-com meets action adventure Charlie Countryman, Shia told his followers to check out the upcoming film and gave them at least one reason to check it out with the racy image. Early on Sunday (hey what else are you going to do on a Sunday morning), 20 October, Shia uploaded the image to his Twitter account, along with the caption; "tune in, turn on, drop out - #CharlieCountryman 11/15."

Brad Pitt's movie 'Fury' has racked up considerable publicity in recent weeks, but what do we actually know about David Ayer's World War II movie?
A stuntman on Brad Pitt's World War II movie Fury was stabbed in the shoulder with a bayonet and air lifted to hospital in Oxford this week. The 35-year-old was accidentally injured during a rehearsal at the movie's set in Pyrton, Oxfordshire. Not familiar with this movie? Read our 'Everything you need to know about Fury'.
Earlier this month, a letter was sent to residents in the community on behalf of Pinewood Studios, warning them to expect "intermittent controlled gunfire and explosives" during the shoot for the movie.
A spokesman for the movie confirmed the stabbing happened as two stuntmen were filming at a converted farm.

Charlie Countryman is a regular guy who is prompted to travel to Bucharest in Romania after experiencing a vision of his deceased mother. However, along the way, fate intervenes when a middle-aged man dies in his sleep while seated beside Charlie, and he is suddenly embroiled in the case of his death. He meets his striking musician daughter Gabi who he vows to help find out what happened to her father, while getting involved with her party-hard, drug-taking friends. The pair begin to fall head over heels in love with each other, but when her crime boss husband Nigel appears, things take a turn for the worst for Charlie. Attempting to stand up for himself and protect his new lover, he endures several emotional and physical attacks from the ruthless Nigel before realising the only way he can save Gabi; he must die for her.

The stabbed man was airlifted to hospital.
Fury director David Ayer is looking to make his new movie as realistic as possible, sending his cast to the woods to get them into the mindsets of a WWII troop of soldiers, helping them bond as a unit left to fend for themselves. Then there was the Pinewood Studios notice sent to residents of Shirburn, Pyrton and Watlington in Oxfordshire that they should expect to hear "intermittent controlled gunfire and explosives" during the making of the wartime film.
Stuntman Stabbed During Filming Of Brad Pitt's New Movie, 'Fury.'
However things got a little too real today on set when a stuntman was injured by a bayonet, i.e. the pointed blade attached to the end of a gun. BBC News reports that a 35 year-old was injured at around midday in Pyrton and was subsequently airlifted to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital.

Sex. Sex sex sex. It doesn’t matter how many times we say it, it’s still going to make the headlines. And that’s partly why Nymphomaniac – Lars Von Trier’s upcoming film – has been such hot news: it delves into the risqué subject with alacrity and gusto.
The film has also made the news due to the fact that Von Trier is a bit weird.
Shirburn villagers are warned not to call 999 if they hear gunfire on set of Brad Pitt flick 'Fury'.
Hollywood film producers have informed the residents of Shirburn in Oxfordshire not to worry about any nearby explosions while they shoot Brad Pitt's latest movie Fury.
Shia LaBeouf On The Set of 'Fury
Pinewood studios have taken the World War II historical drama to the tiny village until mid-November to shoot several action scenes for the flick which stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman.
Pitt must have flown right over his head
Why is it so funny when old people don’t know who celebrities are? Jay Z’s subway friend - Ellen Grossman - made the news when she asked the infamous rapper what he did. Now, Mr. Comfort, a consultant for Brad Pitt’s new film, Fury, had no idea who the Hollywood ‘A-Lister’ was.
He had no idea who this man was: Brad Pitt
"My regiment, the Light Dragoons, got in contact with me about three weeks ago. They'd been approached by an ex-officer who worked for a film company and asked if there were any old boys left,” explained the war veteran. "Then Brad Pitt phoned me and said he wanted to speak about Sherman tanks for a film. He talked me into going and, I have to say, I was extremely well treated.”

Should we have listened to Shia LaBeouf on the power of the NSA back in 2008?
Shia LaBeouf's NSA worries were essentially proved correct over the weekend as further details emerged of technology giants' co-operation with US spy agencies. Apple, Facebook and Google issued strongly-worded denials that they had 'knowingly' participated in a scheme with the National Security Agency, providing emails, conversations, documents, photos and other materials from agents.
29-year-old former technical assistant to the CIA Edward Snowden is the individual responsible for leaking one of the most significant cover-ups in US political history, though was Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf the first to publically air his fears of the NSA on a mass scale? During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2008, LaBeouf - the star of the Transformers movies - told the American public that "one in five phone calls which you make are recorded, and logged."
"I laughed at him [FBI agent who told Shia about the surveillance], and then he played back a phone conversation I had had two years prior to joining the picture [Eagle Eye]... And it was one of those 'What are you wearing?' kind of things."

The Cannes Film Festival is here again, though many believe it is not the same without the presence of Lars Von Trier.
A Still From Lars Von Trier's Controversial New Movie 'Nymphomaniac'
In 2011, Lars Von Trier was the undisputed headline maker at the Cannes Film Festival, though for all the reasons. "What can I say, I understand Hitler. I think he did his wrong things ... but I understand the man," the Danish filmmaker said at a press conference for his movie Melancholia, as Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg looked for the nearest hole to swallow them up. On the occasion, Von Trier was regarded persona non grata and was essentially banished from the festival.
Now, two years later, he has another controversial movie to promote - Nymphomaniac with Gainsbourg, Jamie Bell, Shia LaBeouf and Willem Dafoe - though there is no room for the movie at Cannes. Instead it premieres four days after the festival ends, in Denmark. According to Fox, Von Trier is not banned from the Cannes and simply missed the cut-off submission date for his movie to screen there. The Guardian's critic Xan Brooks argued that Cannes without the filmmaker is simply not the same - and the blustery Riviera weather has done little to make stars, critics and filmmakers feel at home. "He transgressed and was punished and the scars, it seems, have yet to fully heal," Brooks wrote. "But Cannes and Von Trier need each other."

Fox jumping on a trampoline is the first glimpse at the movie we've gotten.
We know she probably hasn’t been on your mind too much lately, but Megan Fox’s trampoline studs made headlines yesterday. The Transformers starlet was caught filming a scene for her upcoming Michael Bay production, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As Fox was wearing tight clothing – a tank top and yoga pants, you can imagine how excited the fanboys got over the stills. We’ll give you a hint: very excited.
For those of you who haven’t been paying close attention, here’s a quick rundown of the Fox/Bay situation. The actress starred along with Shia LaBeouf in the first two transformer movies, before being booted off for a younger, hotter actress (who had, as you may have guessed, even fewer lines in the film than Fox had had). At this point though, everything is mended between Bay and Fox and she is back to provide the mandated dose of eye candy in the flick - which, judjing from the trampoline photos, courtesy of Us Weekly, she is doing a spectacular job providing.
In this new adaptation, Fox will be portraying TV reporter April O’Neil and she’ll be teaming up with actors Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Noel Fisher (Michelangelo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo) and Danny Woodburn (Splinter), as well as a lot of CGI. The plot or general idea is as of yet unknown, but you can count on the fact that, in typical Michael Bay style, there will at least be lots of explosions throughout to keep you from getting bored.
Does 'Orphans' manage to get by without Shia LaBeouf?
The Broadway production of Lyle Kessler's 'Orphans' starring Alec Baldwin, opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Thursday evening (April 18, 2013), after a chaotic build-up that saw lead star Shia LaBeouf walk out of rehearsals. The play follows two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. The eldest (originally played by Shia, now by Ben Foster) supports his younger sibling (Tom Sturridge) by stealing before kidnapping a rich old man (Baldwin) who becomes the father figure the boys never had.
Alec Baldwin [L] and Tom Sturridge [R] Star in Orphans On Broadway
LaBeouf departed after a highly publicized disagreement with Alec Baldwin, with private emails making their way online. "I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don't think he's in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn't," Baldwin told Vulture.com afterwards. However, the Transformers actor showed up on the front row for the previews at the end of March and led a resounding standing ovation when it finished.

'Transformers' star Shia LaBeouf signs autographs and poses for pictures with fans as he arrives outside the New York studios for 'The Late Show With David Letterman'. When the photographers spot that he is wearing some sort of foot support instead of a left shoe, they burst out laughing.
Shia LaBeouf attends the first preview evening of the Broadway play he just got fired from
Shia LaBeouf attended the opening performance of the Broadway play Orphans on Tuesday night, despite having been fired from the play around a month earlier. ‘How supportive and mature of him,’ you may be thinking. Well… not quite. This is Shia LaBeouf, we’re talking about here – you know, the former child actor who hasn’t quite managed to shake off the whole ‘spoilt brat’ thing that most child actors have? No, it turns out that Shia went to the effort of sitting through the entire performance of Orphans, just to make a highly sarcastic gesture at the end, thumping the stage with over-exaggerated enthusiasm as his replacement, Ben Foster, took a bow. Bitter? Um, yes, just a touch, it seems.
The cast that never was...
According to a report from New York Times, La Beouf appeared to be at the show alone and sat on the front row, on the aisle. He left his seat during the interval but returned for the second half. At the curtain call, Shia was the first audience member to stand, jumping to his feet “before any other audience member to give a standing ovation at the end.” As Foster took a bow, his predecessor “rapped his palm on the stage.” He left soon after.
The trailer for 'The Company You Keep' suggest Robert Redford has returned to form as a director.
Robert Redford appears to be back on track. Some five years after his disappointing drama 'Lions For Lambs', the Oscar winning director has returned to similar territory with 'The Company You Keep,' a slick looking drama starring an all-star cast. And when we say all-star cast, we really do mean it.
Redford stars and directs in the story of Jim Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father living in New York. Shia LaBeouf plays a scruffy intrepid journalist who exposes Grant as a man wanted for a murder he allegedly committed in his days as an anti-war radical. When another member of the Weather Underground - played by Susan Sarandon - is arrested, LaBeouf's Ben Shepard smells an opportunity to make a name for himself with a national story. The superb Stanley Tucci plays his prickly finger-pointing editor (is it us, or was he born to play a prickly finger-pointing editor?) while the excellent Anna Kendrick plays a vulnerable FBI agent. Elsewhere, there's a gruff looking Nick Nolte, the old-hand Richard Jenkins and legendary western actor Sam Elliott. Oh, and there's Brendan Gleeson. And Terrence Howard. And Julie Christie.
Ben Shepard is a young and ambitious reporter determined to make a name for himself in the media world. When Sharon Solarz, a member of the radical left organisation Weather Underground, is arrested for her involvement in a bank robbery and subsequent murder 30 years ago, Ben smells an important story that could be his big break. Meanwhile, attorney Jim Grant, a single father of an 11-year-old daughter named Isabel who was also involved in the crime, is forced on the run from the FBI as Ben sparks a new manhunt, but on the way he changes course in an effort to expose the truth and prove his innocence. Ben discovers that the whole story is more complicated than he initially thought, particularly as not everyone appears to be who they say they are.

Shia LaBeouf quits Broadway play Orphans over creative differences with Alec Baldwin
Shia LaBeouf quits Broadway play after a week of rehearsals? We can’t say we’re too surprised. The actor was to play Treat in a revival of Lyle Kessler’s 1983 play Orphans, however, it appears he ran into difficulties with co-star Alec Baldwin, who himself has had a rough week after being accused of racist slurs by the New York Post. It’s bad news for LaBeouf fans who had already snapped up tickets for the Transformers star’s Broadway debut when they were made available two days ago, though the nature of his exit looks complex.
On Wednesday, LaBeouf – who allegedly dropped acid for his turn in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman - took to Twitter to post a series of emails to and from members of the creative team. One from the director Daniel Sullivan appears to hint at artistic tensions between LaBeouf and Baldwin, both hot-headed yet talented performers. “I'm too old for disagreeable situations,” Sullivan wrote, “You're one hell of a great actor. Alec is who he is. You are who you are. You two are incompatible. I should have known it.” Sullivan appears to suggest Shia tried to dissuade him from putting him in the production, saying, “This one will haunt me. You tried to warn me. You said you were a different breed. I didn't get it.”
In an email to both Baldwin and Sullivan, LaBeouf apologizes for his role in the situation, saying, “A man can tell you that he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologise, even if it's just to put an end to the bickering.” The correspondence paints a picture of a tense and frosty atmosphere on the set of the play, which is set to open at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre in the spring. The production’s official website still features a banner with Baldwin, LaBeouf and the British actor Tom Sturridge.
It seems most of the publicity for Shia LaBeouf's 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman' has focused squarely on the lead actor's drug taking in preparation for a scene in the movie. At Sundance this week, LaBeouf confirmed he dropped acid for a sequence in which his character Charlie is tripping on LSD.
The movie - by newcomer Fredrik Bond - follows the story of a young American who travels to Eastern Europe with no plans or ambitions. He lands in Romania, a place more foreign than he could have ever imagined. Charlie finds himself pursuing an equally lost girl named Gabi, a mysterious woman with a dark past. The film generated plenty of buzz at Sundance, though after wading through the tales of acid and method acting, is The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman really that necessary?
The critics don't think so.
With speculation about forthcoming Star Wars movies reaching boiling point, we think it's time to sit back, take a breath, and ask, "WHAT ABOUT INDIANA JONES?" As has been widely reported, George Lucas has handed over his brainchild LucasFilm to Disney for a cool $4 billion, with the studio giant signalling itself intention to go ahead and make further the Stars Wars saga.
Of course, the sci-fi franchise will be Disney's main priority in terms of what they've got for their money, but they now own the rights to Indiana Jones too, which has pulled in nearly $1.9 million at the domestic box office. Despite scathing reviews, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull still pulled in $786.6 million in 2008, proving demand for the franchise is anything but dead. Disney already had two hugely popular Indiana theme parks, the Indiana Jones Adventure at Disneyland in California and the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando. On paper, a new movie appears to be a no-brainer, though things are a little more complicated in reality.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Disney chief Bob Iger said there were "some encumbrances" to monetizing Indiana Jones and Steven Spielberg isn't exactly jumping at the chance to direct adventure-action films at the moment. During a recent interview in promotion of his Lincoln biopic, he explained, "I knew I could do the action in my sleep. At this point in my career, in my life, the action doesn't hold any - it doesn't attract me anymore." Should Lincoln go on to win Golden Globes and Oscars, we could probably rule a new Indiana Jones movie out, straight away.

The story centres on the three Bondurant brothers in rural Virginia. Eldest sibling Forrest (Hardy) runs the family moonshine business with middle brother Howard (Clarke). But the younger Jack (LaBeouf) wants in on the action and secretly teams up with whiz-kid Cricket (DeHaan) to speed up production and sell their wares to a big-city gangster (Oldman). Then slimy city-slicker Federal Agent Rakes (Pearce) arrives, determined to stop bootlegging no matter who he has to torture and kill. Meanwhile, a sexy barmaid (Chastain) with a shady past arrives to distract Forrest, while Jack daringly woos the rebellious daughter (Wasikowska) of the local preacher.
Continue reading: Lawless Review
The Bondurant Brothers, Forrest, Howard and Jack, take up lawless methods of achieving the American Dream during the Depression in Franklin County, Virginia. Soon their illegal money-making schemes, including selling their home brewed moonshine in their saloon, attract the attention of the local law enforcement who recruit a corrupt inner-city cop, Charlie Rakes, to break the brothers and force them to give him shares in their profits. In an attempt to gain his brothers' respect and win the heart of the pure and well brought up Bertha who seeks danger and excitement, the suggestible and smart Jack partners with the brutal and, quite frankly, untrustworthy city gangster Floyd Banner - things start to become strained for the Bondurants when the 'indestructible' Forrest is seriously injured and loyalty among the brothers is questioned.

When man first landed on the moon over 40 years ago, their journey was well documented and broadcast on the TV around the world, what we weren't to know was the details of a secret mission the astronauts carried out on the 'dark side of the moon'. What they discovered was beyond their belief, evidence that we're not alone in the universe.

The film's beginning will not allay your fears. Kale (LaBeouf) and his dad (Matt Craven) are fishing. Knee-deep in a lake and surrounded by mountains, they share a particularly cheesy father-son moment. We see that he's not just Kale's father, he is his friend. The relationship is so clichéd and the setting so cloyingly idyllic, that one wants to run for the (admittedly beautiful-looking) hills. However, before you go to switch off the Hallmark channel, Caruso offs the dad in a car accident just brutal enough to forgive what came before and dissolve some preconceptions. It's a pretty good move (although not quite Janet Leigh in the Bates Motel shower) and sets us up for a film that effectively handles and plays its audience.

You won't find any sort of rabblerousing or sense of time in Emilio Estevez's Bobby, his account of the people that were in attendance when Robert F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel. Estevez tosses together close to two dozen major characters and storylines along with footage of RFK campaigning against racism, America's poverty, and unlawful McCarthy tactics. The stories run the gamut from a young couple (Elijah Wood and Lindsay Lohan) getting hitched to keep the groom out of the war to an alcoholic diva (Demi Moore) and her forgotten husband (Estevez himself) to a philandering hotel manager (William H. Macy) who must keep his affair with a switchboard operator (Heather Graham) from his wife (Sharon Stone) and from an infuriated ex-employee (Christian Slater). There's also a pack of poll campaigners (Nick Cannon, Joshua Jackson, Shia Labeouf, and Brian Geraghty) who must deal with an acid freak out facilitated by a hippie (Ashton Kutcher), a pushy Czech journalist (Svetlana Metkina), and a flirty waitress at the hotel restaurant (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Sounds like the makings of an ensemble comedy, no?

Pretty badass, right? Definitely. Deep and meaningful? Hardly. This is a violent and apocalyptic story, based loosely on the Hellblazer graphic novels by comic book legend Alan Moore. And much to the relief of comic book fanboys everywhere, this adaptation adheres to the heavy, religious-war foundational spirit of Moore's work.

Sachar's antihero is Stanley Yelnats IV (Shia LaBeouf), an affable but luckless teen who's accused of a crime he did not commit and ordered to serve his sentence at Camp Green Lake, a Texas labor camp that's neither green nor near any lake. Instead of archery and crafts, the inmates spend their days digging holes under the watchful eye of crusty Mr. Sir (Jon Voight). His boss, Warden Walker (Sigourney Weaver), seeks something of value under the camp and needs the boys to keep tunneling until the unidentified treasure is found.
Continue reading: Holes Review
A rare kids' flick that engages youthful intellect and heart instead of patting youngsters on the head and spoon-feeding them stock anecdotes and tie-in toys, "Holes" is a fun family flick with a manifold plot about a smart, quiet teenager who gets the fate-fueled chance to reverse his family's hereditary bad luck.
It seems a curse was put the great-great-grandfather of curly-headed moppet Stanley Yelnats (Shia LaBeouf), and the trickle-down effect has landed the kid at a parched, ghost-town-like juvenile rehabilitation center in West Texas -- ironically called Camp Green Lake -- for a crime he didn't commit.
The venomous Warden (Sigorney Weaver, delighting in the role's sneering, sinister qualities) has a strange idea for building character in her charges: the boys spend every single day digging five-foot-deep holes in the dry lakebed. Her policies are enforced by the Mr. Sir, a classically menacing, beer-bellied, bow-legged figure played by Jon Voight in a scene-stealing standout performance. Sporting a graying Elvis pompadour, a villain's pencil mustache, twitchy wild eyes, and a low-slung holster, he's the kind of baddie who makes you giggle while making your skin crawl too, as he squints in the faces of potential escapees and seethes that in the desert "the buzzards'll pick ya clean by the end of the third day."
