Shia LaBeouf Ready To Perform Sex 'For Real' In Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac?
This week Shia LaBeouf announced that his blockbuster phase is over. From here on out, he's focusing on working with indie artistes, starting with everyone's favorite provocateur, Lars Von Trier. But will Shia go all the way for his art on Von Trier's Nymphomaniac, which will reportedly be shot in both softcore and hardcore versions and potentially require its cast to perform unsimulated sex scenes?
"There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing [the sex] for real," LaBeouf told MTV during a chat promoting Lawless, as Lawless co-star Jessica Chastain looked on lamenting the future corruption of "little Shia." "And anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening."
Charlotte Gainsbourg will play the lead and reunite with her Antichrist director in Nymphomaniac, in which Von Trier "wants to see the sexual arousement of a girl [on screen]," according to producer Peter Aalbæk Jensen. Stellan Skarsgard and Nicole Kidman have also signed on to join the cast.
