Shia LaBeouf Wins Screenplay Contest.

It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.

A few days ago it was announced that Hollywood actor and (let’s be honest) style icon Shia LaBeouf’s new screenplay, won an award for up and coming writers!

Titled ‘Minor Modifications’, the script revolves around the life of rapper Kevin Abstract, and follows a teen struggling with identity, relationships and sexual fluidity. Shia became inspired to write the screenplay after developing a close connection with the rapper, during weekly therapy sessions.

The award-winning script is only Shia’s second screenplay and comes after the success of his film “Honey Boy”, which is a dramatic imagining of LaBeouf’s life, written by the actor during his time in rehab.

However, Shia’s win did come with some backlash with the other writers claiming it was unfair, saying that the Hollywood actor was taking away from their opportunities.

A rep for LaBeouf hit back, saying :

“Shia entered the competition as an emerging writer. He is thrilled to be a part of the community and thrives off of any opportunity to gain insights from those with more experience”

While we don’t know if the script is becoming a movie anytime soon, we are definitely excited! Are you?
