by at . Comments

Shia LaBeouf has signed on to portray the title role in the big screen version of John Grisham's upcoming legal thriller The Associate.

According to Variety,  LaBeouf will play a student who's about to graduate from Yale Law School. In typical Grisham fashion, however, he's manipulated into accepting a job at a top law firm and given privileged information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit.

The novel itself will be published in January by Random House.
