Shia LaBeouf and Charlie Sheen Blacklisted in Hollywood?

Why does this last week reading internet articles seem like seeing a bunch of gossip rag magazine titles near the grocery store checkout stand?

Then again, sometimes even those rags get the riches right.

Have never been much of a Shia LaBeouf fan, sort of believing he was overrated. The Transformer movies, let’s be honest, aren’t exactly actor range-stretching roles, but he surprised me in Peanut Butter Falcon. I liked what he did in that film. I tried (briefly) to get into Honeyboy but it wasn’t really my type of movie. Not saying that was a good or bad film, it just didn’t click with me. No harm, no foul there.

Alas, I’ve come across several recent articles citing some serious problems LaBeouf has had off screen leading to him allegedly being blacklisted in Hollywood. He was also fired from Olivia Wilde’s second movie, Don’t Worry Darling before much filming even began, for being difficult to work with — allegedly. Wilde reportedly has a “no asshole” policy on set.

But this stuff with stray dogs? WTH?!?

I suspect, rightly or not, that audiences are able to eventually forgive racism, violence and domestic abuse – but killing dogs for kicks is another matter altogether. As such, scooper Daniel Richtman is reporting that LaBeouf is now fully blacklisted in Hollywood. He’s been dropped from every part he was cast in, isn’t attached to any upcoming projects and won’t be considered for any further high profile roles. At least, not for a long, long time.

Shia LaBeouf Is Reportedly Fully Blacklisted In Hollywood Now

Animal cruelty, seriously? Got to hope this is all BS and not true.

Then there’s Charlie Sheen, Mr. Tiger Blood himself. Apparently he’s living in a van down by the river, er, he is/was/might be major league behind on child support and went to live with his parents for a time being.

At one point, when he moved out of the famed Mulholland Estates, Sheen, 55, moved in with his parents, the source says — Martin Sheen is 80, and Janet Sheen is 76. “Think how inglorious that is: he’s gone from the highest paid person on television to living in Malibu with his father and mother. He could be the oldest son in Malibu living with his parents!” says the insider.  

From Baller To Squalor: Charlie Sheen Moves Into Modest Malibu Apartment After He Was Forced To Live With Dad, 80, And Mom, 76

Like the title of that post, “From Baller to Squalor” — it just doesn’t make any sense for a guy that was once clearing millions from his TV gig. Clearly a sign that excess can destroy anyone.

Will we ever see Shia LeBeaouf or Charlie Sheen in any significant acting roles again? My guess is yes. They both are too talented to keep out of films, but it sounds like whomever takes a chance on a project involving them is going to be taking on some very high risk.

Are you interested in seeing new movies by either or both of these actors?

FIRST LOOK: Grizzly II: The Revenge

Back in September 2020, we came across a movie from 1983 starring George Clooney, Charlie Sheen and Laura Dern (see: Nearly 40 year old film featuring George Clooney, Charlie Sheen and Laura Dern to be released in Fall 2020) that had never been released.

While it took almost 40 years to finally be completed, recently that happened.

At the time we read it might be released in the fall of 2020, but that didn’t happen. Our original post received some interest, so clearly others were curious like us. Good news, because this film is now available as of this writing on PVOD.

It’s available on Google Play to rent for $3.99 and buy for $7.99 USD. The original movie, Grizzly, which didn’t star any of the three above named famous actors is also available for purchase.

Just for those who didn’t click through on our original post (the pre-FIRST LOOK, I guess), here is the official trailer:

Am thinking about dropping a few bucks to check this out, if nothing other than to see all three of these actors onscreen early in their respective careers. Does the movie look cheesy? Of course. On the horror front, though, got to love the box art with the bear all in outstretched hug mode. Love the dialogue, “We’ve got to kill it!” The bear just wants to eat, come on now 😉

Has anybody reading seen this yet? Your non-spoiler thoughts in the comments area, please?

Grizzly II: The Revenge is available on PVOD as of January 8, 2021.

Nearly 40 year old film featuring George Clooney, Charlie Sheen and Laura Dern to be released in Fall 2020

Grizzly II: Revenge shows on IMDB as being released in 1983 — but it wasn’t. Bootlegs have existed out there, which probably explains the ratings. The long time caretaker of the film has finally finished it.

It was originally shot with actors we know today but were unknown then (George Clooney, Laura Dern and Charlie Sheen) Apparently, it’s been finished and the plan is to release it in Fall 2020.

Did you know there’s a movie where a giant bear tries to kill Laura Dern, George Clooney, and Charlie Sheen during a music festival? If you’re wondering how you never saw such a spectacle, there’s a very good reason: it was never released. Grizzly II (which went by two different titles, Grizzly II: The Predator and Grizzly II: The Concert), was filmed in 1983 in Hungary, but never released. But that’s about to change!

Yes, there is a trailer:

Grizzly 2: Revenge doesn’t have an official release date yet, but several publications have stated it’s coming in Fall 2020.
