Shia LaBeouf reteams with his Fury director David Ayer for another of Ayer’s gritty dives into the underworld of Los Angeles, The Tax Collector. LaBeouf plays Creeper who with his partner David (Bobby Soto) are “tax collectors” for crime boss Wizard, taking what is owed from the other criminal gangs and illegal activities around the city. When Wizard’s chief rival arrives from Mexico, David’s family is threatened and he and Creeper have to go to war to protect what is closest to them. If you’ve seen past Ayer stuff like Training Day, Harsh Times and End of Watch, this seems right in that wheelhouse, with shady business deals, gritty locations, and brutal shootouts. The movie is arriving in theaters, VOD, and Digital on August 7th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
