Shia LaBeouf is throwing in the towel when it comes to big budget studio movies. Due to the lack of creative freedom and not really having the ability to pursue ambitious projects, he’s been frustrated for a few years now ever since the released of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. While venting about the movie gods a few years back, Steven Spielberg specifically, LaBeouf made negative comments that he now regrets, that were directed towards Inidana Jones that impacted his relationship with Spielberg. He told Inside Movies,“He told me there’s a time to be a human being and have an opinion, and there’s a time to sell cars,” LaBeouf said. “It brought me freedom, but it also killed my spirits because this was a dude I looked up to like a sensei.” LaBeouf is now changing the wind in his sail from Hollywood blockbuster actor to an indie film star.
LaBeouf is starring in numerous upcoming roles in films like The Company you Keep (directed by Robert Redford), The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. Releasing this month he’ll be in Lawless with Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce, check out the trailer below:
