It seems that an upcoming production has switched out its lead actor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bradley Cooper is set to star in Dark Fields, in a role that Shia LaBeouf was originally attached to.

Neil Burger is directing the film, with Leslie Dixon adapting the Alan Glynn book for the screen. The story revolves around a writer (Cooper) who comes across a secret drug that makes people smarter. While he acheives success with the drug, he starts to experience the potentially-lethal side effects, not to mention the men chasing after him for the drug.
