Lucas Hedges to play Shia LaBeouf in Honey Boy
The Lady Bird actor will be essaying the role of actor Shia LaBeouf in the biopic
Actor Lucas Hedges is on board to essay the younger version of Shia LaBeouf in the family drama Honey Boy. The film is a story of a child star attempting to mend his relationship with his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father over the course of a decade. It is loosely based on the life of LaBeouf, whose childhood nickname was Honey Boy. The project is being directed by Alma Har'el.
While LaBeouf last starred as John McEnroe in Borg vs McEnroe, he will be seen next in Peanut Butter Falcon. Hedges was last seen on-screen in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird.
