LaBeouf pulls out of Broadway debut

Shia LaBeouf has pulled the plug on his Broadway debut

Shia LaBeouf has pulled the plug on his Broadway debut.

The star of the Transformers franchise had been due to appear opposite Alec Baldwin in Orphans but producers said that LaBeouf will not be continuing "due to creative differences".

The play by Lyle Kessler, which premiered in 1983, tells the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit Philadelphia row house who decide to kidnap a wealthy man.

LaBeouf played one brother and Baldwin the target.

Orphans, directed by Daniel Sullivan, opens at the Schoenfeld Theatre on March 19. Producers said an announcement on LaBeouf's replacement would be made soon.

LaBeouf, whose films include Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, was most recently seen in John Hillcoat's crime drama Lawless.
