In Hollywood, it seems like anything is fair game. And that means seeing former Disney Channel stars take on mature roles.
Shia LaBeouf has announced that for his upcoming film, The Nymphomaniac, “nothing is off limits,” including the script’s real sex scenes.
“[The movie] is what you think it is. For instance, there’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we’re doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we’ll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening,” LaBeouf told MTV News.
The film is being directed by Lars von Trier and he plans on creating two versions of the film, one explicit and one less X-rated.
The Nymphomaniac will follow a woman who “discovers her hidden erotic desires.”
According to film website IMDB, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg have already signed on.
What do you think about LaBeouf’s choice to take on his most mature role yet? Do you think it’ll be a challenge for him? Did you grow up watching him on the Disney Channel? Do you think it’s a “big deal” or just another movie deal?
