Actor Shia Labeouf has reached a settlement with the producers of Broadway production Orphans after he was fired from the show earlier this year (13). The Transformers star was set to make his New York stage debut opposite Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge in March (13), but he bowed out of the play during the second week of rehearsals due to creative differences with his co-stars and director Daniel Sullivan. LaBeouf later explained he was actually fired from the show because he did not get along with his castmates, so he filed a grievance with the Actors' Equity union against producers Robert Cole and Frederick Zollo for unfair termination. Both parties have now put an end to their dispute after reaching an undisclosed agreement. A joint statement issued to the New York Times reads, "We regret the circumstances that caused Shia's departure from Orphans. Shia is a gifted actor whose full preparation to undertake the role of Treat demonstrated his respect and devotion to the play. "The parties recognise that neither Mr. LaBeouf nor the producers was at fault. We have the utmost respect for Shia and his acting abilities, and would welcome the opportunity to work with him in the future."
