Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf are in talks to play a father-son spy duo in Spy’s Kid, says The Hollywood Reporter. D.J. Caruso, who worked with LaBeouf on both Disturbia and Eagle Eye, is attached to direct for Paramount Pictures.
The trade says the movie will be based on a six-part series of articles by Bryan Denson that were published in The Oregonian in 2011 and told the true story of a traitorous spy who enlists his son to continue his work. You can read all six articles here.
Jarod Einsohn is attached as executive producer and Emily Berger as co-producer. No writer is on board yet.
