Shia LaBeouf, the actor who made his name with the “Transformers” movies, has declared that he’s cut ties with the big-budget studio system. So just how serious is he about becoming an art house name? It turns out, very.
While promoting his upcoming release “Lawless” alongside co-star Jessica Chastaine, the star told MTV that he’s willing to do anything Lars von Trier asks of him for the Danish auteur’s next project, “Nymphomaniac,” which will reportedly be shot in softcore and hardcore versions.
“There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we’re doing [the sex] for real,” LaBeouf says in the video interview. “And anything that is ‘illegal’ will be shot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening.”
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgård round out the cast for the sure-to-be-controversial project that follows “the erotic life of a woman from the age of zero to the age of 50.”
