Will the actors have to wear condoms?
He recently bared all after appearing naked in an arty Sigur Rós video.
But it seems Shia LaBeouf’s next project could leave him even more red faced.
The 26-year-old actor has admitted to being ‘terrified’ about playing his role in upcoming film The Nymphomaniac – because he and his co-stars have to perform real sex acts.
The man behind the movie is Danish director Lars von Trier – who is planning on making two versions of the film.
Other stars involved include Nicole Kidman, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, and Willem Dafoe.
The film is said to follow a woman throughout her sexual life.
In an interview with MTV News, Shia implied he would be taking part in the graphic sex scenes – and would be willing to go as far as the Melancholia director asks him to.
He said: ‘[Von Trier] is very dangerous. He’s the most dangerous dude that I’ve ever showed up for.’
Admitting his fears, he went on: I’m terrified. I’m so terrified, which is why I have to go. We’ll see what happens.’
Asked how far he would take it, he went on: ‘[The film] is what you think it is.
‘There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we’re doing [the sex] for real… and anything that is illegal will be shot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening.’
The 2001 film Intimacy, by French director Patrice Chéreau, starring Mark Rylance and Kerry Fox, famously featured unsimulated sex scenes.
But LaBeouf suggested von Trier will be pushing the boundaries further, saying the rest of the cast is ready to do whatever is asked.
He added: ‘I’ve seen Intimacy. [Von Trier is] talking about something different… It’s going to be a wild movie.’
