Shia LaBeouf, the American actor currently starring in Michael Bay's 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', has revealed he is to work with Marilyn Manson on a forthcoming documentary. LaBeouf discussed the unlikely collaboration during an appearance on Thursday's 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (30th June 2011).
Just days after signalling his intention to leave the Transformers franchise, the actor claimed to be working with the eccentric rocker Manson. LaBeouf, who has helmed music videos for rapper Cage and Kid Cudi, was reportedly asked to direct a documentary about the making of the singer's eighth album. Discussing meeting the rocker under unusual circumstances, Shia said, "He lives in West Hollywood above a liquor store. There are no lights in the room. And there are these big metal doors and he opens the door and he's in a kimono, a big pink kimono", adding, "It's sort of like a lair. No lights, so you have to use your cell phone to guide you around. We sat and watched movies for a while and talked about what kind of visuals he wanted on his album, which are all really eccentric ideas". Little is known about Manson's follow-up to his 2009 record 'The High End of Low' and LaBeouf gave no indication as to when he will begin work on the film.
Shia Labeouf hit the headlines this week after claiming he and Megan Fox had a fling during the filming of one of the first Transformers movies.
