Shia LaBeouf (Holes) is in talks to star in The Greatest Game Ever Played, based on the true story of an amateur golfer who beat the most famous pro of the day at the 1913 U.S. Open.
The Disney film is based on Mark Frost's best-selling book "The Greatest Game Ever Played: Harry Vardon, Francis Ouimet and the Birth of Modern Golf." The studio is eyeing a summer shoot.
LaBeouf would play Ouimet, a 20-year-old golf amateur from Massachusetts who shocked the genteel golf world by defeating British champion Vardon, the inventor of what today is still considered the modern grip and swing.
