Shia Labeouf To Star in New Film About Italian Saint Padre Pio

Since his allegations of sexual abuse have been leveled, Shia Labeouf will be staring in director Abel Ferrara's new film.

The movie will be about the life of Italian Saint Padre Pio.

Ferrara told Variety, “We’re doing a film about Padre Pio, he’s a monk from Puglia. It’s set in Italy right after World War I. He’s now a saint, he had stigmata. He was also in the middle of a very heavy political period in world history.” He went on to state, “He was very young before he became a saint, so Shia LaBeouf is going to play the monk.”

Filming will begin in Puglia, Italy this October. We asked the Hardcore Nation what their thoughts on this were. Many stated that they feel as though another actor could play the role better.
