Shia LaBeouf backs out of 'Rock the Kasbah'

The latest move in Shia LeBeouf’s quest to stop being famous appears to be pulling out of the all-star comedy Rock the Kasbah.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 27-year-old has amicably parted from the film, which is set to star Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Danny McBride, Zooey Deschanel, and Kate Hudson. Representatives for LaBeouf did not respond to EW’s requests for comment.

The Barry Levinson movie centers on an aging rock manager who travels to Afghanistan for a USO tour and winds up representing a young girl competing on a Middle Eastern version of American Idol. LaBeouf was to have a supporting role. READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2014: Lars von Trier's top-secret screening of 'Nymphomaniac'...and the Aussie chiller 'The Babadook'

I arrived at Sundance early last night, a step ahead of an East Coast blizzard, to take the critic’s baton from my colleague Owen Gleiberman for the second half of the festival. The first words I heard when I arrived in Park City, Utah, were that there would be a top-secret screening Tuesday night of an eagerly anticipated film from a prominent director months before its scheduled release. The guessing games whipped into a full-on tizzy immediately, with the early odds-on favorite that it would be either Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel or Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher. But when a sign outside the theater warned that “No one under 18 would be admitted”, it was clear it would be neither. This was going to be something naughty.

We were about to be treated to Lars von Trier’s arthouse sex-addict provocation, Nymphomaniac, Vol. 1.

About halfway through, I would have given anything for it to have been either of the other two.

Shia LaBeouf could face legal action for plagiarism

There may be legal ramifications for Shia LaBeouf after he acknowledged borrowing from another artist’s work without giving proper credit.

LaBeouf debuted his short film, Howard Cantour.com, online on Monday starring Jim Gaffigan. It examines the life of an anguished online film critic. That was also the story line of a 2007 graphic novella by artist Daniel Clowes titled Justin M. Damiano.

Clowes declined to comment directly, but according to his publisher, Fantographics’ Eric Reynolds, Clowes “is exploring his legal options.” READ FULL STORY

Shia LaBeouf responds to plagiarism allegations on Twitter: 'I f---d up'

UPDATE: According to reports, Shia LaBeouf also plagiarized his apology.

HowardCantour.com wasn’t exactly a new thing. The Shia LaBeouf-directed short premiered at the Cannes Film Festival Critic’s Week sidebar in 2012, and, despite some acclaim, little was made of his portrait of an online film critic.

But the film was made available online Monday, and things started to spiral out of control quickly when bloggers noticed that LaBeouf’s short film bore a striking resemblance to author Daniel Clowes’ comic Justin M. Damiano. Soon after, articles started dissecting the similarities and direct references to Clowes’ text without any attribution, and the video disappeared behind a password-protected wall.

LaBeouf had remained out of touch for most of the day, and his reps did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment. But then, early Tuesday morning, LaBeouf decided to tweet his thoughts on the kerfuffle, culminating in the mea culpa, “I f—-d up.” Take a look after the jump.

EW’s request for comment to Clowes was not returned.

'Charlie Countryman' director Fredrik Bond on Shia LaBeouf's nude scene, Rupert Grint's gritty role -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Charlie Countryman, Shia LaBeouf bares all as the title young man who travels to Eastern Europe and soon finds himself entangled in a love triangle with a Romanian woman, Gabi, (Evan Rachel Wood) and her mob boss husband (Mads Mikkelson). The film, which debuted at Sundance last year under the slightly more cumbersome title The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, takes viewers to the underbelly of Bucharest. LaBeouf had some challenging scenes in the film, including going full frontal and reportedly tripping on acid to get into character.

EW spoke with director Fredrik Bond about the exclusive scene below and his work with LaBeouf, Wood, and Harry Potter alum Rupert Grint. Charlie Countryman opens in theaters on Nov. 15.

'Charlie Countryman' red band trailer: Shia LaBeouf, urinals, ecstasy, and strip clubs -- NSFW VIDEO

If your dead mother appears to you in a vision and tells you to go to Bucharest, do you listen? Charlie Countryman does, and immediately hops on a plane to Romania.

In Charlie Countryman, directed by Fredrik Bond, Charlie (Shia LaBeouf) gets entangled in the seedy Bucharest underworld after falling for the mysterious Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood, rocking some intense eyeliner and a thick Romanian accent). Unfortunately Gabi is tied to a violent and acutely jealous mob boss played by Mads Mikkelsen. Til Schweiger, Rupert Grint, and Melissa Leo also star.

Check out the red band trailer after the jump. There’s nudity, blood, drugs, a lot of rough language, and a particularly disheveled LaBeouf, so judge accordingly. The work-friendly green band trailer is available here.

'Nymphomaniac' posters put the 'O' in nympho -- PHOTOS

Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac may as well be subtitled The Agony and the Ecstasy. At least that’s the vibe reverberating from a new series of posters promoting the erotic movie about one woman’s lifetime of sexual adventures and relationships. The agony is ours, in some cases, as these O-face photos couldn’t be more overt (and a few are a little icky), and the ecstasy… well, that’s self-evident.

Von Trier is reportedly working on two different versions of the two-part, five-hour film, a softcore version that is scheduled to be released in Denmark on Dec. 25 and a more graphic version that might premiere at next year’s Cannes Film Festival. Von Trier was banned from Cannes in 2011 after making some Hitler remarks, so this promises to be quite the return.

In addition to the poster with Charlotte Gainsbourg, there are shots of Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Jamie Bell, and Stellan Skarsgard. Don’t Google “Nymphomaniac” to see them all — that’s just asking for computer trouble. Click below instead. READ FULL STORY

Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' will feature body-doubles for graphic sex scenes

It turns out that Lars von Trier’s next movie, Nymphomaniac, will use body doubles for its controversial sex scenes after all.

At Cannes this week, producer Louise Vesth said there would be graphic sex scenes between the members of the cast, which includes Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, and Uma Thurman, but there would also be body-doubles. “We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body-doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two,” Vesth explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “So above the waist it will be the star and the below the waist it will be the doubles.”

Vesth’s comments are a reversal from what LaBeouf originally told reporters when he signed on to the project, which is now planned as two full-length movies expected to debut this December. LaBeouf previously said, “We’re doing it for real … everything is happening. It’s going to be a wild movie, man.”

For now, fans hoping to catch the actor completely in the beouf will have to make due with this Sigur Ros music video.

Casting Net: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' may have found their villain; Plus Shia LaBeouf, more

• Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies, The Fall) is in final talks to star in the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy film as the villain. At one point, Pace was being considered for the lead, which eventually went to Chris Pratt. Details on his role are sparse, but we’re not complaining if Guardians wants to take the Avengers route of casting a handsome bad guy. Pace donned a variety of different elaborate costumes recently for his roles in Lincoln, The Hobbit, and Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and will be appearing in the next two installments of The Hobbit as well as the AMC drama Halt & Catch Fire.  [The Wrap]
