Young Israeli director Alma Har'el will direct Honey Boy, a biopic about Shia LaBeouf's life as a child.

Shia LaBeouf is, if you don't know, the famous actor, known for his movies Lawless (2012), Fury (2014), American Honey (2016) and for appearing in Transformers franchise of movies.

Honey Boy will concentrate on LaBeouf's childhood, and his relationship with his hard-drinking, law-breaking father.

Shia LaBeouf will play his father, and young Shia will be portrayed by a rising star Lucas Hedges.

LaBeouf only used his family misfortune as a basis for Honey Boy, and there will be no real names used in the movie. LaBeouf's character will be called James Lort, and his son will be Otis Lort.
