Shia Labeouf has spent the last few years starring in numbered movies: Indiana Jones 4, Wall Street 2, Transformers 1-3. Now that he's one of the most powerful young actors in Hollywood, Labeouf looks to be branching out into less sequel-heavy fare. He has the period bootlegging drama The Wettest County in the World in the can, and is currently filming the political thriller The Company You Keep with director/star Robert Redford.

What do you do when you throw in the towel on appearing in giant robot movies? You become a giant yourself, according to Variety.
The "Transformers" star is going for his first truly "quirky" film as he signs on to play the title role in "A Giant," a fantastical romance that follows a young woman who moves back home to reconnect with her brother and forms a relationship with the 20-foot-tall man-child who lives next door.
