Shia LaBeouf 'to play giant'

The Transformers star has been lined up to play the character in an upcoming romantic comedy.

The 25-year-old has been chosen to play the main role in the Gil Kenan-written movie, reports Variety.

The film tells the tale of a young woman who moves back home to reconnect with her brother but falls in love with his 20-foot tall neighbour (LaBeouf).

AngeleFine Productions described A Giant as "Lars and the Real Girl meets Edward Scissorhands".

Rumours are circling that the film is to be re-named before it's released but trying to make Shia look like he's 20 feet tall must be quite high on their priorities...
