JOINS BRAD PITT & ROBERT DE NIRO
Young star Shia LaBeouf has two new gigs: he will join Brad Pitt in FURY, a war drama based on a true story which follows a five-man American tank crew towards the end of World War II, as they fight a flailing Nazi army in April 1945, just before the war's end. Pitt will be the leader and Shia one of the soldiers in the film scheduled for November 2014 release. Shia LaBeouf will also join Robert De Niro in SPY'S KID. After he played Indiana Jones' son, he will now play De Niro's son in the espionage thriller based on real stories published in a series of newspaper articles. If they accept the roles, the two of them will play a father and son duo, with the story revolving around a traitorous spy who enlists his offspring to continue doing his dirty work.
