Shia LaBeouf Promotes ‘Transformers’ In Asia, Won’t Be In ‘Y: The Last Man’

It had been assumed that Shia LaBeouf would continue to work with D.J. Caruso, director of Eagle Eye and Disturbia, by taking on the title role in the film adaptation of graphic novel Y: The Last Man, which Caruso is set to direct.

However, while Shia’s been jetting all through Asia to promote Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, he now claims that he believes his character in the Michael Bay action flick too closely resembles his Transformers role of Sam Witwicky.

Shia tells Wizard magazine, “It seems like he’s the ordinary guy in an extraordinary situation again. I’m not willing to make that movie currently, and may be too old to play the role by the time it does come around.” He says that now, but we just need to wait until he’s stuck playing boring romantic comedy after romantic comedy and see if he’s whistling a different tune.
