Superman: Shia LaBeouf, who stars in the upcoming Will Smith starrer, I, Robot, recently talked to USA Today about his possible role as 'Jimmy Olsen' in the upcoming Superman film, directed by McG...

"I met with McG (the director) today and talked about Jimmy Olsen and who's going to be playing who," said LaBeouf. "The production's so locked down they said I can't even take the script home. I have to go to Warner Bros. (studio) to read it and then leave it there." RELATED: Superman's New Motto Swaps 'the American Way' with 'a Better Tomorrow'

LaBeouf may not have left with a script, but he did leave with some intriguing casting info, the article says. Mainly, Jake Gyllenhaal is apparently no longer in the running for Superman.

"They're going to go with an unknown," said LaBeouf, adding that McG is trying to lure Scarlett Johansson for Lois Lane and Johnny Depp for Lex Luthor."
