Shia LaBeouf: 'Transformers sequel unlikely'

By
Shia LaBeouf (Transformers: Dark of the Moon - 2011)
Shia LaBeouf has admitted that he no longer wants the leading role in the franchise Transformers.

The first film saw him playing high school student Sam Witwicky, who is now seeking a job in the adult world, in the third movie Dark of the Moon.

LaBeouf told MTV News: "I just don't think right now there's anywhere to take Sam."

He added that he was keen to work again on another unrelated project with Transformers director Michael Bay again, describing himself as "raised" by the action helmer.

However, LaBeouf recently said that he is keen on departing from the genre of films he has made his name in, in order to take on different roles.

The 25-year-old actor recently expressed his belief that the departure of Megan Fox's character Mikaela Barnes from the franchise has allowed his own character to develop, saying that Barnes and Witwicky had effectively "became one character" and "there was no room for Sam to be heroic".
