Shia LaBeouf and Mel Gibson Teaming Up for Dark Satire ROTHCHILD
Shia LaBeouf (Fury, Lawless, Honey Boy) and Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Signs, Edge of Darkness) have both signed on to star in the dark satire about New York’s super wealthy called Rothchild. Jon S. Baird (Stan and Ollie) is set to direct. LaBeouf and Gibson are both fantastic actors who have each given some epic performances in their day, but have both had some issues surrounding their anger struggles and legal difficulties sounding them. Hopefully they can keep it together and pull out great performances for this movie.
Deadline reports that the film will focus on:
“charismatic outcast Becket Rothchild (LaBeouf) plots his way back into his family’s riches, setting himself on a collision course with patriarch Whitelaw Rothchild (Gibson). On the way, he must infiltrate the weird and twisted lives of his super-rich kin including frat boys, hipster artists and reality TV stars.”
This sounds like it will be an over-the-top real life description of the excessive lives of the mega-rich socialites of New York City. I think it is perfectly cast, as both actors are quite dramatic and can really bring a character and story to life. I am looking forward to this movie, for sure.
Rothchild is still very early in production, so it will probably get a 2020 release date. Are you excited for this team up? Let us know in the comments.
