The actor has revealed that the sequel will be "different" and dealing with the "crime of the century".
LaBeouf told Extra: "We’re deep in prep now. We start in August… It’s definitely going to be different.
"Just the financial landscape is very different. We’re talking about the crime of the century…It’s a crime. Blatant crime…In this financial climate, it’s very relevant."
Joining LaBeouf will be Oscar winners Javier Bardem and Michael Douglas, who is reprising his role as Gordon Gekko.
