Shia LaBeouf and Marilyn Manson team up for the short film Born Villain
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I can honestly say that the title “Shia LaBeouf and Marilyn Manson team up for a short film” is a sentence that I never thought I’d write. But it seems like nothing is off limits in Hollywood, so the TRANSFORMERS star and the Goth rocker teamed up to do the short film and accompanying book, BORN VILLAIN. I’ll let Shia explain how it came to be:
Locals Rule. I think. Odd, living in L.A all my life and taking for granted my environment, my city. But one night, just a few months ago, I bumped into Marilyn Manson at one of my locals and together we crawled the city a bit; where he lived, where I lived, where we ate and drank and where we have been entertained. We traveled the roads to those places on streets that had become too familiar. And then I reflected back on that brief journey and traced that trip (with photographs). I connected buildings and streets, freeways, storefronts and trees with a BORN VILLAIN at my side. Here it is but with a little mood music to set my mood.
