Shia LaBeouf, perhaps tired of having film critics make fun of him in the "Transformer" movies, takes aim at those stodgy cinema scholars in a short film he directed called "Howard Cantour.com" which will premiere at Cannes during, surprise, surprise, Critics Week!
Previously, LaBeouf has directed the short film "Maniac" with Kid Cudi, and also directed the rapper's music video for "Marijuana."
LaBeouf is attending the Cannes Film Festival, not only for "Howard Cantour.com" but also for "Lawless" which will have its world premiere at the fest. Based on Matt Bondurant's "The Wettest County in the World," "Lawless" tells the tale of three brothers (LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, and Jason Clarke) who turned to bootlegging during the Depression-ear in Virginia. It's a star-studded Weinstein affair which also feature Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska. Directed by John Hillcoat ("The Road"), "Lawless" arrives in U.S. theaters on August 31.
Check out "Lawless" trailer below:

Time is ticking for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and still, the production is experiencing last-minute cast changes. According to The Huffington Post, Sacha Baron Cohen and Kurt Russell have left the film and its fantastic cast which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Don Johnson.
Previously, Joseph Gordon-Levitt departed production citing his very busy schedule.
Cohen, whose "The Dictator" is set to open on May 16 (I have great interviews with the cast of "The Dictator" coming up), was unable to appear in "Django Unchained" because of his prior commitments regarding "The Dictator."
Russell's exit is far more mysterious. No one knows why!
But Ain't It Cool News writer Mr. Beaks reports that Russell will not get replaced in the film but his role will get "absored" by Walton Goggins who stars in "Django Unchained" as Billy Crash.
All these musical chairs are making me more curious to see "Django Unchained" on Christmas Day (that's Dec. 25 for you heathens!) this year!
