LaBeouf to Be Disturbia Director's Last Man?

A fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy?

Only a few short years ago, Shia LaBeouf was just another Disney Channel tween actor hoping to make the leap from a family sitcom to the big screen. These days, he’s leading a master class in how to build a grown-up career, as evidenced by star turns in Disturbia and Transformers and his upcoming performance in Indiana Jones IV. Now, MTV Movies is reporting he could go from boy to man to the man.

According to the report, LaBeouf is in line to star in Disturbia director D.J. Caruso‘s adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughan comic Y: The Last Man, which deals with the aftermath of a plague that has wiped out all the males in the human race. All except one, that is — and LaBeouf would play that survivor, a man named Yorick, who wanders the Earth with a pet monkey named Ampersand.

It sounds campy, but as readers of Vaughan’s comic (now approaching its 60th issue) could tell you, it really isn’t. Y: The Last Man uses a familiar setup to delve into some rather complex sociological issues, and has earned a fair amount of acclaim during its run, which is scheduled to conclude later this year.

The project is still in the distance, and LaBeouf hasn’t committed to anything yet, but as Caruso tells MTV Movies:

“This is funny, but unbeknownst to me, Shia was already chasing this part prior to anything,” Caruso said. “I haven’t talked to him yet about it because he’s off shooting ‘Indiana Jones 4,’ but Shia is the right type and the right personality because you want to have the humor, but you also want to have the seriousness. So we’ll talk about it when we get there.”
