Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf are in talks for director D.J. Caruso's Spy's Kid. This will be his second film with Shia LaBeouf after 2008's Eagle Eye.

Set in the world of espionage, this true-life thriller is based on a series of articles that ran in the Oregonian. Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf will play a father and son duo, with the story revolving around a traitorous spy who enlists his offspring to continue doing his dirty work.

Both actors' final involvement in the project hinges on the screenplay. No writer has been hired at this time. The film has no set start date.
