Shia LeBeouf to produce and star in Cage biopic

SPIN magazine and Pitchfork have reported that Shia LeBeouf has started to plan a biopic about Def Jux rapper Cage. Apparently LeBeouf is boys with the rapper and started filming a documentary and decided to turn it into a full fledge biopic.

I don’t know about LeBeouf’s vision of film but I’m guessing his recent franchise roles (Tranformers, Indiana Jones) are more of a means to make a ton of green at 21 to produce cool flicks like this.

I’m really not hoping for a drugged out version of 8-Mile cause Cage is much more dense than Eminem.

Pitchfork comments on Cage’s history in a album review:

“Cage has the kind of life story most aspiring new-schoolers just lie and make up. He was abused by his dishonorably-discharged junky father and his stepfather, kicked out of high school, overmedicated in a mental hospital, became a white-rap wunderkind in the early 90s, almost put out an album on Columbia, kicked around the major label system, got hooked on drugs, had a kid, got dissed on the first Eminem album, and found himself a home in underground rap.”
