Shia LaBeouf Hates Blockbuster Movies!

[postlink][/postlink] [starttext]
Judging by his most recent career moves, it's pretty obvious that Shia LaBeouf is more of a fan of the indie-style stuff than he is of big-action Blockbuster stuff.
He recently spoke out to the Hollywood Reporter in a candid interview, where he dished on why the smaller-flicks are more his speed these days.
The 26 year old said he's completely done with big studio films, and boldly said, "There's no room for being a visionary in the studio system. It literally cannot exist. You give Terrence Malick a movie like Transformers, and he's f--ed. There's no way for him to exist in that world."
Shia also spoke highly of people who work in the indie film industry, calling them "a miracle."
He says that indie film studios give you money to make the movie and trust you to do so, whereas big studios come out to the set and closely monitor your every move.
Also kind of big for Shia—he publicly acknowledged that he "deeply regrets" any negative comments he made about the Indiana Jones move he starred in—those comments ultimately hurt his relationship with Steven Spielberg, which is something he clearly feels bad about.
Up next for Shia is a film called Lawless with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska, and Jessica Chastain, which is an indie gangster-type film.
He's also working with avant-gard director Lars Von Trier on a new sexual drama called Nymphomaniac.
Shia said the reason he's a sexually explicit film like that is because, "Lars Von Trier is dangerous. He scares me. And I'm only going to work now when I'm terrified."
So what do you guys think of Shia making the jump to ONLY indie flicks? Are you gonna miss him in big roles like in Transformers, or are you excited to see him tackle gritty, indie roles?
