Shia LaBeouf won’t be making his Broadway debut this spring after all. The actor, scheduled to appear in “Orphans” in New York next month, has opted out of the play due to “creative differences,” the LA Times reports.

Even though he will no longer be part of the production, “Orphans” is still on schedule, the aforementioned publication says.

“‘Orphans’ is still scheduled to open at the Schoenfeld Theater on April 7, with previews commencing on March 19. The production, directed by Daniel Sullivan, also features Alec Baldwin, in the role of a powerful man kidnapped by two brothers,” LA Times notes.

As of now, no replacement for LaBeouf has been announced. Further specifics on the so-called creative differences have not been made public.

Right now, Shia LaBeouf is moving towards an indie movie-based career, after swearing off (more or less) big Hollywood productions after he chose to leave the “Transformers” franchise.
