Shia Labeouf Signs Onto Interesting Film THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON

Shia Labeouf is a guy who's not afraid to take a controversial role, and that trend continues with his latest project. Variety tells us that Labeouf has jumped on board The Peanut Butter Falcon.

The film is described as being in the vein of a Mark Twain tale, and follows a character named Zak, "a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from the nursing home where he lives to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and attending the Saltwater Redneck wrestling school. Through circumstances beyond their control, a small-time outlaw also on the run (to be played by LaBeouf) becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally."

The film is to be shown at Cannes this month, and will likely be purchased. I'm curious as to what audiences will think of the film, are you?
