Shia LaBeouf denied reports saying he is in final talks to star as the titular character's son in "Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures."
Amidst the buzz following Variety's March 8 report on him being in talks to play the son of the title character in "Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures", Shia LaBeouf surprisingly showed his denial of doing so upon getting interviewed by IGN Movies during the promotion of his new thriller "Disturbia" at this year's SXSW Festival.
"It's nuts. It's like these rumors are spiraling out of control," the actor claimed. "Look, there's no deal on the table. If it was on the table, I would love to. It's like a dream come true to be in that project, but it's a rumor at this point. These things happen, but it's wild that it was in Variety; it's weird."
LaBeouf, a native of Los Angeles, California, received wide notice when he played Louis Stevens in the Disney Channel's children series "Even Stevens", through which he was awarded a Daytime Emmy Award in 2003. Besides "Disturbia" which is slated to open April 13, he can also be seen this year in highly anticipated flick "Transformers", released on July 4.
