Shia LaBeouf Finds A Villain
In Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's new film

As it's bubbled through development, psychological thriller Villain has seen more than one director come and go. Now the film has apparently locked in 28 Weeks Later’s Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to call the shots and Shia LaBeouf is set to star.

Written by Josh Zetumer (who worked on the script for the RoboCop reboot), Villain follows two brothers (LaBeouf will be one; the other is still to be cast) who venture into the unforgiving wilds of Alaska to confront their dark past. Estranged for a long time, they hope the trip will help them bond once more, but clearly they get more than they bargained for. If only they’d watched Sean Penn’s Into The Wild before heading out…

David Slade was on board to direct last year, but has since dropped out thanks to his busy schedule.

LaBeouf will next be seen in Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman and Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. Fresnadillo last made Intruders and is attached to Wednesday and a remake of X: The Man With The X-Ray Eyes.
