The actor, who confirmed to be in talks to star in the erotic drama earlier this month, said although he is now firmly attached, he is terrified to begin shooting, reported Showbizpsy.
"He's very dangerous. He's the most dangerous dude I've ever showed up for. I'm terrified," the actor said of the director.
The 'Transformers' star also said that the film, which also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe, will have real sex scenes on screen. "It is what you think it is.
There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we're doing the sex for real. And anything that is 'illegal' will be shot in blurred images, but other than that, everything is happening," he added.
