Shia LaBeouf is looking to make a comeback after the recent troubles that he’s found himself in. Director Abel Ferrara has revealed that LaBeouf is set to take on the lead role in his next movie. The story of that film centers on the younger years of Italian Saint Padre Pio. Willem Dafoe is also looking to join the film.

Ferrara said in a statement, “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 was very young before he became a saint, so Shia LaBeouf is going to play the monk.”
