Shia LaBeouf has attached himself to a script from Gil Kenan, currently titled A Giant. Variety has the news, claiming that the title is likely only temporary.
The film, described by AngeleFine Productions as "Lars and the Real Girl meets Edward Scissorhands," would star LaBeouf as a 20-foot giant. Their full synopsis is as follows:
A modern day adult dramatic fairy tale. A story of love and friendship between a rebellious young woman and the mysterious young man who lives in the shadows next door.
Lava Bear Films will produce with the Henson Company and Variety hints that Universal may step in as distributor.
LaBeouf, who appeared earlier this year in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, will next star in The Wettest Country in the World. Kenan is best known as the director of the animated film Monster House and for his live-action followup, City of Ember.
