Shia LaBeouf (Transformers) is the object of desire for director Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac.  The erotic drama is the next project from the Danish director, whose previous efforts include 2011’s Melancholia and 2009’s Antichrist.   It will follow the erotic events in the life of a woman from her youth to age 50; Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist) will play the lead with Stellan Skarsgard (The Avengers) attached as her husband, who listens to her recount the adventuers.  There is limited information as to how large (ha!) LaBeouf’s role will be.  Hit the jump for more on Nymphomaniac.

THR reported shia-labeouf-nymphomaniacon von Trier’s interest in LaBeouf.  Nymphomaniac, which is scheduled to begin production this September in the German state of North-Rhein, will be released in two versions: one, softcore and the other, a more explicit edition.  Other rumored cast members include Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman, who previously worked with von Trier in Dogville.  

LaBeouf is in a bit of an indie run lately, with John Hillcoat’s Prohibition-era drama Lawless opening on August 29th, followed by Robert Redford’s thriller, The Company You Keep and Fredrik Bond’s action rom-com, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman LaBeouf has been busy in other media as well.  Perhaps in clairvoyant preparation for his possible role in von Trier’s erotic drama, La Beouf recently appeared in the LaBuff for Sigur Ros’ music video as part of “The Valtari Mystery Film Experiment.” Check it out in your own time if you want a preview of what you might get from von Trier’s Nymphomaniac.
