Shia LaBeouf and director DJ Caruso, fresh from their $80 million success on “Disturbia,” will team up once again for the terrorist thriller “Eagle Eye.”
The project, which was written by Dan McDermott, was originally going to be directed by Steven Spielberg, but since he’s busy with “Indiana Jones 4,” he handed the gig over to Caruso. LaBeouf will play a young man whose brother dies under mysterious circumstances — and then he and his mother are framed as terrorists. Sounds pretty cool, actually. “Forced to become members of a cell that has plans to carry out a political assassination, they must work together to extricate themselves.”
The mega-busy Mr. LaBeouf also has “Transformers” and “Indy 4” on the way. Popular kid.
