Replacing Shai LaBeouf in suspense thriller
Dark Fields is described as a what-if story about a designer drug that can make you rich and powerful. Eddie (Cooper) is a down-and-out New York writer until he possesses a pill that gives him the ability to access the full capacity of his brain. He soon realizes that his newfound intelligence and success come at a hefty price as mysterious forces begin to pursue him.
Shia LaBeouf was at one point attached to the project but had to bow out after his car accident that left his hand shattered and delayed shooting on Transformers 2.
Dark Fields will begin lensing in late spring 2010.
