A-List actor Shia LaBeouf is reportedly back in Chicago filming a new movie. And no, this time he hasn't been arrested. (Yet, at least.)

According to the Chicago Tribune, LaBeouf -- who is no stranger to filming in the Second City, of course -- was in the city's Wicker Park neighborhood, walking out of an alley near the Damen Blue Line train station under the watchful eye of a small film crew and a police officer.

LaBeouf was also seen Sunday at Underground Wonder Bar on the Near North Side, the Tribune reports. The Oh No They Didn't blog last week posted a photo of a man they said was LaBeouf apparently in the midst of shooting a film scene on the Wells Street Bridge downtown.

The 26-year-old actor is reportedly filming "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" in town, a film which, according to its IMDB page, centers on "a guy [who] falls for a woman who's claimed by a violent crime boss."

The film also stars Rupert Grint and Evan Rachel Wood and features Melissa Leo and Aubrey Plaza among its cast. It is slated for a 2013 release.
