Per the Hollywood Reporter, Shia LaBeouf ("The Greatest Game Ever Played") will star in DreamWorks’ new thriller, "Disturbia," which will be that studio’s first project under the Paramount umbrella; D.J. Caruso will direct.

From the Hollywood Reporter: "Written by Christopher Landon, the story revolves around a troubled high school senior (LaBeouf), still grieving over his father’s death, who is sentenced to house arrest after an outburst of anger at school. While at home, he becomes convinced that his neighbor is a serial killer.

Landon wrote the initial script, and Carl Ellsworth, who wrote "Red Eye" for DreamWorks, did a rewrite. Montecito, which has a first-look deal with DreamWorks, picked up the script as a spec in June."


LaBeouf, whose star has recently begun to take off in memorable sidekick roles in films like "I, Robot" and "Constantine," had leading roles in family flicks "Holes" and the recent period golf drama, "The Greatest Game Ever Played."

Director Caruso’s most recent films are 2002’s "The Salton Sea," "Taking Lives," and "Two For The Money."
