The film will chart the rivalry between McEnroe and Swedish star Bjorn Borg during the 1970s and 1980s.

Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason is playing Bjorg.

LaBeouf, who has been at the centre of his own share of controversies, has previously revealed he feels a kinship with McEnroe.

:: Borg Vs McEnroe is due to be released in September.
