Shia LaBeouf Drops Film Project, Schedules Hand Surgery

labeouf needs more surgery on hand

Shia LaBeouf, Eagle Eye star, has been recovering from a serious hand injury that he suffered in a July 27 rollover.  He had extensive surgery on his crushed hand immediately after the accident and was able to complete filming of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

His latest project, Dark Fields, is another matter.  The role would have had LaBeouf's character stumbling upon a one-of-a-kind smart pill.  Production has already been delayed and apparently can't wait any longer so the action film, directed by Neil Burger, will move along without Shia.

LaBeouf, whose injury was far more serious than most thought, will undergo another procedure to repair the area around his thumb.  Check out photos of the crash here.
