shia-labeouf Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is set to direct Shia LaBeouf in two-hander psychological thriller “Villain”, according to Deadline. The film was written on spec by Josh Zetumer and follows two brothers who confront their dark past and each other in an unforgiving wilderness. The other brother should be set soon, Deadline further reports. Under an earlier configuration with director David Slade, the film was to shoot in Alaska but no word if that’s still the case.

LaBeouf got high marks in Cannes last year for his turn as one of three bootlegging brothers in Prohibition-era Virgina in “Lawless”, and then appeared opposite Robert Redford in “The Company You Keep” and Evan Rachel Wood in “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.” He’s wrapped up filming on Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” and is next set for David Ayers’ WWII tank actioner “Fury” opposite Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman.
