Shia LaBeouf makes headlines for new fight and new movie role


Image Credit: Rob Kim/

Shia LaBeouf is back in the news today for two reasons: TMZ has obtained footage of a physical altercation the actor found himself in outside a bar in Vancouver, where he’s now filming Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep. After the man punching LaBeouf is chased off by others, the actor appears to want to go after him but is stopped. If you watch until the end of the sneakily shot video, you get to see a man who appears to come out of nowhere asking LaBeouf if he can hug him. That’s something that would happen in a movie about a movie star who keeps getting into brawls. You can watch the video here. LaBeouf’s publicist declined to comment to EW about the incident.

And what if care more about LaBeouf’s career? Well, EW has confirmed that he’s signed on to star as a 20-foot-tall man-child who forms a relationship with a down-on-her-luck girl next door in a “quirky love story” with the working title A Giant. (Variety first reported the story.) Monster House‘s Gil Kenan will direct his own script. Jim Henson Co. is among the film’s producers.

Here’s a more appropriate video to accompany that bit of news.

    You got dropped kid! Likable enough young actor, but something tells me he’s also a drunken wiseacre that deserved what he got.
