Meanwhile, playing LaBeouf's younger self is Lady Bird and Three Billboards star Lucas Hedges.

LaBeouf co-wrote the script under the pseudonym Otis Lort. It's one of the strangest movies that's in development right now; a biopic about LaBeouf's life and his relationship with his father. It was described as "a child actor and his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father attempt to mend their contentious relationship over the course of a decade". LaBeouf will portray his father in Honey Boy.

Israeli-American filmmaker Alma Har'el, the mind behind Bombay Beach, is attached to direct the film.

Brian Kavanaugh-Jones is producing via Automatik Entertainment along with Christopher Leggett of Delirio Films and Daniela Taplin Lundberg of Stay Gold Features. Automatik's Fred Berger is executive producer.

Shia rose to fame as a child star in Even Stevens but he then had a few troubled years; he has most recently re-emerged from a period of silence following his arrest in 2017 for racially charged expletive-laced disorderly conduct in Georgia, US.

Hedges, only 10 years younger than LaBeouf, earned an Academy Award nomination for his performance in 2016's Manchester by the Sea.

LaBeouf last received critical kudos for his performance in Borg vs McEnroe at the Toronto Film Festival; that film comes out in April 13th.

Hedges will play an Even Stevens-era LaBeouf.
