Shia LaBeouf will star in 'The Dark Fields'



Tbdshialabeouf041508 Everyone's favorite smart-aleck movie teen, Shia LaBeouf, has signed a deal to star in a film adaptation of Alan Glynn's 2002 novel, The Dark Fields, Variety reports.

Neil Burger, who directed The Illusionist, will be behind the camera for the slick, which is about a young man who finds the ultimate smart pill. Hilarity ensues.

Maybe Shia could have given one of those to George Lucas before he called LaBeouf's next picture Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
