Shia LaBeouf has found his next film. The actor will star in the indie adventure drama “The Peanut Butter Falcon”
Said to be in the vein of Mark Twain, the story follows a young man with Down syndrome who runs away from the nursing home where he lives to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler.
Through circumstances beyond their control, a small-time outlaw also on the run (LaBeouf) becomes the runaway’s unlikely coach and ally.
Tyler Nilson and Mike Schwartz are on board to direct from their own script.
