The short film will likely reunite the 'Transformers' star with his friend Cage who lends his vocal on the Kid Cudi song.
"Transformers" actor Shia LaBeouf is going to serve behind the lens for a short film to support Kid Cudi's new single "Maniac". The news emerged after a picture of Cudi holding a white sheet with message "Maniac, Kid Cudi, Cage - Dir: Shia LaBeouf " hit the web.
Cage is one of Cudi's collaborators in "Maniac", and he has confirmed the mini movie rumor on his Twitter, writing "Oh yeah we're doing a short film." Earlier this week, they performed on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" with the other featured guest St. Vincent.
This is not the first time Shia LaBeouf directs a music video. Last year, the "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps" star helped Cage film visualization for his song "I Never Knew You". The two forged a friendship ever since and it is no wonder when he is tapped for another project where Cage is involved.
Kid Cudi is also no stranger to working with A-list actor in his music video as he has worked with Josh Hartnett in "The Pursuit of Happiness" clip. This rapper will release "Man on the Moon II : The Legend of Mr. Rager", where "Maniac" is listed, across U.S. on November 9.
