The hot-about-town (except when flipping cars over while drunk, or trespassing... eh, while drunk) Shia LaBeouf has signed up for a new project from The Illusionist writer/director Neil Burger called The Dark Fields. Flick is based on a 2002 novel by Alan Glynn, and is set in the near future, when a drug called MDT-48 can make your brain function at a hugely more efficient pace - kind of like Berocca, only ya know, better. When LaBeouf's dealer gets clipped, he's left dealing with the side effects. It's quite an interesting idea, and seemingly Philip K Dick in tone; but Burger says he won't be shooting it as a science fiction film. We predict a more thrillery feeling, action flick; either that or a knob and fart joke saturated nipple-fest.
