Shia LaBeouf: actor, street fighter and director, too. The temperamental star has been making headway into a directing career, and in the past year has delivered the Alejandro Jodorowsky-inspired "Born Villain" with collaborator Marilyn Manson, as well as the video "Marijuana" for Kid Cudi. Well, LaBeouf has reteamed with rapper for another, uh, cinematic journey.

Anyone remember the 2009 sci-fi family-friendly "City Of Ember" starring, among others, Saoirse Ronan and Bill Murray? We barely do either but that film was the sophomore directorial effort of Gil Kenan that somewhat halted his career after 2006's animated flick "Monster House."

So, remember yesterday when we told you about "Born Villain," Shia LaBeouf's collaboration with fading shock rocker Marilyn Manson? Well, it's a combination photography/artbook and short film, and in addition to its premier tonight at Space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles, a lengthy music video has hit the interwebs. If this video confirms anything, it's that Manson really, really loves Alejandro Jodorowsky.

When Shia LaBeouf isn't dodging Transformers, he's likes to exercise his artistic muse. Earlier this year, he directed a video for Kid Cudi and as he gears up to team with Robert Redford in "The Company You Keep," the young actor has taken another surprising detour, collaborating with former shock-rocker Marilyn Manson on a forthcoming book and short film entitled "Born Villain." Huh. The project will feature a book of photographs taken by LaBeouf and his girlfriend Karolyn Pho, accompanied by a short film starring Manson and directed by the LaBeouf. Any more details seem to be held up pretty tight, but here's LaBeouf's statement about the project:

"The Conspirator" may have been a little dull, despite an excellent cast, but as Robert Redford was the man behind the sublime "Quiz Show," we're always going to pay attention when the star goes behind the camera, and his latest project, "The Company You Keep," sounds particularly interesting: an adaptation of a well regarded novel by Neil Gordon, with a script by "The Limey" writer Lem Dobbs, the film will see Redford play an ex-Weather Underground militant who's exposed by a young journalist (Shia LaBoeuf), and forced to go on the run. And now, Redford's looks to have landed one of his contemporaries for a role in the project, one who'll likely bring a little crazy on board.

"...I’ve been running for a team of people for a long time and I don’t take any of it back...I’ve learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven’t been allowed to engage in yet,” Shia LaBeouf recently said in the press run up to "Tranformers: Dark Of The Moon" and it looks like he's firmly leaving tentpole movies behind for now. Earlier this spring, he was one of the boys hanging in John Hillcoat's prohibition-era drama "The Wettest County" and now LaBeouf is ready to star and be directed by one of Hollywood's great legends.

With "Transformers: The Dark Of The Moon" set to rape your eyeballs and eardrums this long holiday weekend, it looks like if the franchise wants to continue, it may have to do so without two of its key elements thus far.

Harrison Ford Says What We're All Thinking, Calls LaBeouf A "Fucking Idiot"It appears that Shia LaBeouf has a mouth that can't be stopped. Just a few weeks after the actor dumped on his former co-star Megan Fox, claiming her unforgivable "Spice Girl strength" and her inability to handle Michael Bay's meticulous directions on where to point her ass got her fired from this weekend's "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Now, a new Details magazine feature on the actor finds him using the opportunity to throw Fox under the bus yet again, albeit this time in a wholly different way.

Other Actors Eyeing The Project Include Andrew Garfield, Annette Bening, Shia La Beouf, Evan Rachel Wood and Rooney MaraFile under 'very intriguing development': after more than a decade away from directing (with 1998's underrated political satire "Bulworth"), last week it was reported that 74-year-old Warren Beatty would be returning to Hollywood, helming a new untitled comedy for Paramount. Playlist writer Sam Price, perhaps a little cynical that evening, posited the question: is anyone going to care? Are his best days behind him?

Tyrese Gibson Dreams Of Being On A Steven Spielberg SetLet the "controversy" continue. Weeks after Shia LaBeouf claimed that Megan Fox's "Spice Girl strength" and her desire to be more than drapery with breasts and a butt on the set of the "Transformers" movies eventually got her booted by director Michael Bay. But the helmer of the robots-fighting-each-other movies now has his own slightly different version of what went down.
