Shia LaBeouf was spotted in LA reading a script for the upcoming movie from Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn, Only God Forgives, yesterday. The actor downed some coffee and showed off his Dodgers pride in a sweatshirt as he reviewed the project. Refn's Drive, which stars Ryan Gosling, premieres tomorrow night at the LA Film Festival, and it appears that Shia might be Refn's next leading man. Only God Forgives is set in the underworld of boxing and prostitution in Bangkok and is also expected to feature Kristin Scott Thomas and Luke Evans. It's slated to start shooting in November, giving Shia a break after the worldwide press tour for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The latest installment in the franchise hits theaters on June 29 and will be the first in the series to be both in 3D and feature model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Shia recently said he thought Rosie was a better fit for the lead in the film than his former costar Megan Fox.
