Robert De Niro And Shia LaBeouf To Play A Father-Son Duo In SPY’S KID

De Niro-LaBoeuf - Spy's Kid The unlikely duo of Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf will be teaming up on a good old fashioned spy movie titled Spy’s Kid. A Catch Me If You Can-esque story is based on a dramatic six-part series of articles published in The Oregonian by Bryan Denson with no writer currently attached. LaBeouf’s Disturbia helmer D.J. Caruso is in talks to direct the true story of a high ranking CIA veteran John Nicholson (De Niro) convicted of spying who enlisted his son, 24-year-old college student Nathan Nicholson (LaBeouf) to continue his work from behind bars with the Russians. In 1997, the 59-year-old native Oregonian, whose talent and elan earned him the nickname ‘Batman’ pled guilty, earning himself a 23-year prison stretch for selling U.S. secrets to the Russians, while his son got five years of probation in 2011, after making a deal agreeing to testify against his father. LaBeouf and Caruso also circled an adaptation of Y: The Last Man. LaBeouf who rose to fame starring in Transformers is currently on screens starring opposite Robert Redford in The Company You Keep while De Niro is now shooting David O. Russell’s latest movie, a so-far untitled Abscam thriller, after wrapping up Peter Segal’s boxing comedy Grudge Match. Stay tuned. Jim and Nathan Nicholson
