We first reported on The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman almost a year ago when Shia LaBeouf was reportedly attached to the project. The Transformers star is still starring as the title character and now has a director to work with. Fredrik Bond, a director of numerous commercials, will be directing the “romantic actioner” from screenwriter Matt Drake (Project X). Another commercials director, Dante Ariola, had previously been attached to direct. The plot follows Charlie and his romantic relationship with a girl who has unfortunately been claimed by an insane mob boss with a penchant for violence and a gang at his disposal. Pre-production has started for the Voltage and Bona Fide Productions project. Hit the jump for an example of Bond’s work and the full synopsis of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.

Variety reported on The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman’s acquisition of Bond as director. Here’s an example of his work below from the more romantic side of his work:

And here’s one with a bit more action:

Here’s the synopsis for The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman:

Synopsis: Charlie Countryman (LaBeouf) was just a normal guy…until he fell in love with the one girl who will probably get him killed.  When Charlie meets the absolutely irresistible Gabi she’s already been claimed by Nigel, an insanely violent crime boss with a gang of thugs at his disposal.  Armed with little more than his wit and naïve charm, Charlie endures one bruising beat down after another to woo Gabi and keep her out of harm’s way.  Finally his exploits of blind valor create such a mess that he’s left with only one way out; to save the girl of his dreams, must Charlie Countryman die?
