Shia LaBeouf will star in an upcoming action thriller called ‘Mace’, alongside Trevor Jackson.
In a description provided by Deadline, ‘Mace” is “the harrowing story of two very different types of cops – a veteran officer Mace (LaBeouf), dangerous and corrupt, and Virgil Woods (Jackson), a young rookie who believes that he can change the system that fosters cops like Mace from within”. This film is inspired by the recent racial injustice on the streets of America.
The film will be directed by Jon Amiel and the script is provided by David Chisholm. Reports say Myriad Pictures is currently shopping the project for buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.
