Vanessa Kirby is also set to star.

Shia LaBeouf, who will soon be in theaters with the semi-autobiographical drama Honey Boy, is set to star in the drama Pieces of a Woman with The Crown star Vanessa Kirby.

The feature follows a home birth gone tragically awry as a grieving woman tries to come to terms with her loss while also dealing with the ramifications in her relationships with her husband and her estranged mother.

Kornél Mundruczó, the filmmaker behind the Un Certain Regard winner White God, will direct from a script by frequent collaborator Kata Wéber.

Little Lamb Productions, a division of Bron Studios that is behind the hit HBO show Euphoria, is backing the project, which is being co-financed by Creative Wealth Media.   

Kevin Turen and Ashley Levinson will produce for Little Lamb, along with Aaron Ryder (Arrival). Viktória Petrányi, Sam Levinson, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth and Stuart Manashil will executive produce.

Production is set to begin in December in Montreal.

LaBeouf, repped by CAA, John Crosby and Matthew Saver, was last in theaters with the indie breakout Peanut Butter Falcon. Upcoming projects include a reteaming with Fury director David Ayer on the crime drama The Tax Collector.
