Noah Jupe will be playing young Shia LaBeouf in Honey Boy!
“A Quiet Place” star Noah Jupe will play the young version of Shia LaBeouf in the independent drama “Honey Boy.”
Lucas Hedges will portray the young-adult version of LaBeouf, while LaBeouf will play his own father. The movie is about a child star attempting to mend his relationship with his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father over the course of a decade. The project is loosely based on LaBeouf’s life. “Honey Boy” was LaBeouf’s childhood nickname.
Alma Har’el is directing from LaBeouf’s script. The producers are Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Daniela Taplin Lundberg of Stay Gold Features, and Christopher Leggett of Delirio Films. Automatik’s Fred Berger is executive producing. Stay Gold Features will finance the film.
