Shia LaBeouf signs on to romantic actioner: 'The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman'

Shia LeBeouf, who we’ll see this September in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street 2, has just signed on to star in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, an original romantic actioner from Black List screenwriter Matt Drake. (His script was featured on the 2007 Black List and he is currently writing the low-budget buzzy Project X for The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips) Commercial director Dante Ariola will helm in his feature film debut. Mandate Pictures will produce along with Academy-Award winning producers Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa (Little Miss Sunshine), and William Horberg (Cold Mountain). The producers are fast-tracking the movie towards a fall start date.

The movie centers on Charlie Countryman (LaBeouf) a normal guy who falls in love with the one girl that will likely get him killed. Gabi, yet to be cast, has already been claimed by Nigel, an extremely violent crime boss who employs a slew of violent underlings. Using only his wit and charm, Charlie takes one beating after another to woo Gabi and keep her safe. Finally, it looks there he’s got only one way out to save the girl of his dreams: Will Charlie Countryman die?
