Shia LaBeouf is attached to star in Lava Bear Films' romance film with the working title of "A Giant."
According to Variety, Gil Kenan ("Monster House") will direct from his own script.
Lisa Henson, Jason Lust and India Osbourne are producing.
The film centers on a down-on-her-luck girl who, on the run from several bad relationships, returns home to reconnect with her brother. She ends up starting a relationship with the next door neighbor, who happens to be a 20-foot-tall man-child (LaBeouf).
Universal has been mentioned as a possible distributor.
LaBeouf is coming off the worldwide success of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and will be seen in the upcoming John Hillcoat film "The Wettest County in the World."
