Shia LaBeouf to play A Giant

October 18th, 2011

Shia LaBeouf is to play a 20-foot tall man in a new movie.

The 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' actor is attached to appear in a new love story, which is provisionally titled 'A Giant' and will be directed in the project by City of Ember's Gil Kenan, who has also written the script.

The film follows a girl who is tired of having no money and being trapped in bad relationships, so she moves home to be closer to her family, and ends up falling for her brother's neighbour - the giant who Shia will play.

No other casting information has yet been released.

Shia recently completed filming on 'The Wettest County in the World' and is currently working on political thriller 'The Company You Keep' with Robert Redford.

In addition, the actor recently admitted work on 'Indiana Jones 5' was "not far off".

He said: "I talked to Harrison Ford. He said he's staying in the gym, he said he's heard no word, but he does know that George Lucas is out there looking for a MacGuffin. He said he's staying in the gym, so it means [the movie is] not so far off."

However, this have not all been working out so well for Shia - he was involved in a bar-brawl in the Canadian city of Vancouver on Friday (14.10.11).

The 25-year-old star reportedly "got in a confrontation" with a man who was larger than him.

A source told "He got into a confrontation with a couple of people. He took a few punches to the face. He was obviously pretty intoxicated."
