Shia LaBeouf made the headlines recently in Savannah, Georgia, after he was arrested for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice in early July while filming his latest movie, “The Peanut Butter Falcon.” LaBeouf was also seen to be publicly urinating on the beach at Tybee Island while shooting his latest film. These weren’t the first scandals relating to the actor, and while LaBeouf has since issued a public apology for his actions, saying he is having problems with his addictions, the actor was spotted back on set for the adventure drama film on Monday.

LaBeouf spotted shirtless in a beach scene for the film ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’

According to a report by Just Jared, LaBeouf was seen displaying his manly physique and several tattoos and carrying a shotgun on a Tybee Island beach on Monday while filming "The Peanut Butter Falcon.".

The film also stars Bruce Dern (“Nebraska,” “Coming Home”), Dakota Johnson (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) and newcomer Zack Gottsegen, who was reportedly the inspiration for the movie. As reported by Variety, several other, well-known actors have now joined LaBeouf on set, including Jon Bernthal (“The Punisher”), John Hawkes (“Winter’s Bone”), Thomas Haden Church (“Sideways”) and Yelawolf (a hip hop artist).

‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ is an adventure drama

The upcoming film is about a young man called Zak (played by Gottsagen) who has high-functioning Down syndrome.

Zak makes up his mind to run away from his nursing home in rural North Carolina where he has spent all his life to become a professional wrestler. His character then ended up attending Saltwater Redneck wrestling school. By chance a small-time outlaw (played by LaBeouf), who is also on the run, becomes his ally and coach, helping him to achieve his goal.

Zack Gottsagen inspired the film

Gottsagen, the inspiration for the film “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” is previously known for his roles in the 2012 short film “Bulletproof” and for playing himself in a documentary, “Becoming Bulletproof” in 2014. In the documentary, a group of people from across the U.S. with various disabilities appeared in a costume drama Western in various vintage locations across Hollywood.

As reported by Variety back in June, Gottsegen himself lives with high-functioning Down syndrome, which led him to be the inspiration for the film when directors Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz met up with him while working at a non-profit arts organization.
