Shia LaBeouf is coming out with his first film since he was charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct after shouting racially-charged slurs at police officers. LaBeouf has since been diagnosed with PTSD from hearing his mother getting raped, and he attributes his shameful behavior to this. He is, however, taking full responsibility for his actions.
In an interview with Esquire earlier this year, LaBeouf said:
I need to take ownership of my shit and clean up my side of the street a bit before I can go out there and work again, so I’m trying to stay creative and learn from my mistakes. I’ve been falling forward for a long time. Most of my life. The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot.
It looks as though he may have found the plot again, as he is moving on to new projects. His most anticipated new film is The Tax Collector, directed by Fury director David Ayer.
Speaking of plots, the film’s is top-secret. But on Friday, Ayer tweeted a photo of LaBeouf with the hashtag #taxcollectormovie.
Check it out.
