Shia LaBeouf is eyeing the quirky love story A Giant (working title) developed by David Linde, Tory Metzger and Adam Rymer under newly created banner Lava Bear Films.

Gil Kenan (Monster House) will direct from a script he wrote.

The film follows a girl, broke and running from a series of bad relationships, who moves back home to reconnect with her brother. Instead she forms a relationship with a 20-foot-tall man-child who lives next door, to be played by Shia LaBeouf.
