Shia LaBeouf to Fill Big Shoes as Giant in Quirky Love Story

Shia LaBeouf’s post-Transformers career seems to be moving in a, let’s say, quieter direction, first with John Hillcoat’s Prohibition-era drama The Wettest County in the World and then with Robert Redford’s thriller The Company You Keep.

From there, Variety reports, the 25-year-old actor will move into quirkier territory with an untitled love story from Lava Bear Films, the Jim Henson Co. and French visual-effects house BUF.

Directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), the film — it has the working title “A Giant” — follows a girl fleeing from a series of bad relationships who moves back home to reconnect with her brother. Instead, she ends up forming a relationship with a 20-foot-tall man-child (LaBeouf) who lives next door.

There’s no distributor yet, but given that Lava Bear partner David Linde was chairman of Universal Pictures until leaving in 2009, there’s a good chance “A Giant” could land at the studio.
