Shia LaBeouf is all grown up and almost unrecognizable in the upcoming biopic Honey Boy. The “Transformers” actor co-wrote the feature and is gearing up to play his biological father as he tells his life story.

The project will be directed by Alma Har’el and follows a child actor (Lucas Hedges) and his law-breaking, alcohol-abusing father”—based on LaBeouf’s own father, Jeffrey—“attempt to mend their contentious relationship over the course of a decade.”

The 31-year-old mentioned having personal issues back during his teenage years while acting on popular 90s’ sitcom “Even Stevens” on the Disney Channel.

Fast forward, Labeouf began to follow in his father’s reckless footsteps the past few years. Shia LaBeouf was reportedly arrested on several occasions for his unruly behavior.

He made a statement following the ongoing incidents with law enforcement.

“My outright disrespect for authority is problematic, to say the least and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low.”

“I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.”

Honey Boy might be the therapy Labeouf needs to heal his adolescent wounds.

A release date has not been announced for the film.

Adapted from the Joan Didion novel of the same title, the film is set against the nebulous milieu of the Iran-Contra scandal. Veteran D.C. journalist Elena McMahon played by Hathaway abandons the 1984 campaign trail out of a misguided sense of duty to her father.
