Shia LaBeouf has found his mini-me.

The former child star is drawing on his complicated adolescence in his upcoming film "Honey Boy," and he's also turning to younger actors for help. Most recently, LaBeouf tapped Noah Jupe to play a young version of him, Variety reports. The 13-year-old "A Quiet Place" star will appear alongside LaBeouf himself.

For someone so young, Jupe has a fair amount of credits to his name. The actor has appeared in several films -- including "A Quiet Place," which is currently in theaters, and 2017's "Suburbicon" alongside Julianne Moore and Matt Damon -- as well as TV shows. Based on his success in 2017, Jupe was nominated for the London Film Critics' Circle Awards' Young British/Irish Performer of the Year honor.

Jupe isn't the only actor who will play the main character. The story will follow the titular "Honey Boy" through various parts of his formative years, and 21-year-old Lucas Hedges ("Ladybird") will portray his young adult years. Meanwhile, LaBeouf will play a character inspired by his own father.

"Honey Boy" does not yet have a release date.
