Shia LaBeouf has nabbed the lead role in Paramount’s new John Grisham adaptation The Associate.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the film, and recruited LaBeouf on the set of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, reports Variety.
The Eagle Eye star will play a Yale Law graduate who is manipulated into taking a job at a big legal firm and slipped insider information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit.
Back To The Bar
The Associate marks Grisham’s first time dabbling in the legal world since 2005’s The Broker, and – in true Hollywood book-buying style – won’t be published until next month.
There’s no word on a director or writer yet, but given Paramount’s close working relationship with LaBeouf, the studio will get the film on the fast track.
