Shia LaBeouf might have gone a bit, err, peculiar, earlier this year, but it now seems he’s getting back on track as it’s been announced that he will star alongside Kate Mara and Gary Oldman in the psychological thriller, Man Down.
Dito Montiel (A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Fighting) will direct from a screenplay by Adam Simon (Synapse), which is about a haunted Afghanistan war veteran who attempts to come to terms with his past while searching for his family in a post-apocalyptic America.
Shooting is due to start on October 30th in Louisiana.
Producer Dawn Krantz commented, “When I read this script for the first time I knew it was something very special. We are so thrilled to be able to have put together such an exemplary cast with an outstanding director to tell the story.”
