It’s a ballsy move for Hedges as he’ll be part of a movie loosely based on LeBeouf’s own life, and follows a ‘child star attempting to mend his relationship with his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father over the course of a decade’. The title of the film, Honey Boy, comes from Shia’s childhood nickname. It’s got to be intimidating though for Hedges to be playing the person he’s starring with, while you have to hope something so personal won’t get to Shia too much.
Alma Har’el is set to direct the movie. It’s not clear when it might shoot.
