Earlier today we reported that Shia LaBeouf definitely won’t be back for anymore Transformers action, and now we’re wondering whether that’s because he’s got paranoid about looking tiny next to his enormous robotic co-stars. The only reason to think this is that he’s now attached to a project where he gets to be the huge one.
According to Variety LaBeouf is now onboard the love story A Giant (working title), which Gil Kenan (Monster House) will direct from a script he wrote. The film follows a girl who is broke and running from a series of bad relationships, who moves back home to reconnect with her brother. Instead she forms a relationship with a 20-foot-tall man-child who lives next door, who’ll be played by Shia LaBeouf.
Perhaps it’ll be less bizarre than it sounds when it gets to the screen, although it doesn basically sound like LaBeouf wants to be the Transformers this time around. A Giant has no studio home at the moment, although Universal is seen as a strong possibility.
