According to the report, the 26-year-old “Transformers” star has decided to quit the Broadway revival of “Orphans” just one month before the play’s scheduled preview performances are set to start.
However, Shia LaBeouf quitting hasn’t halted production of the play. The performances are still on schedule to begin on time, and “Orphans” opening night is still scheduled for the Schoenfeld Theater on April 7.
There is no word on what “differences” prompted Shia to leave the job, but it’s clear that there was a dispute between LaBeouf and others on the stage production.
"Orphans," first debuted in 1983 at the Matrix Theatre in Los Angeles, and is often revived at theaters across the nation. The play was turned it into a movie in 1987, which starred Albert Finney, Matthew Modine and Kevin Anderson.
The play Shia LaBeouf quit has also been taken on by actors such as Al Pacino and Jesse Eisenberg, who starred in the production in 2005.
