LaBeouf had earlier acknowledged the fact that he borrowed from another artist's work without giving proper credit, the New York Daily News reported.
LaBeouf debuted his short film, "Howard Cantour.com," starring Jim Gaffigan, which examines the life of an anguished online film critic and is in the lines of the story of a 2007 graphic novella by artist Daniel Clowes titled "Justin M. Damiano."
According to Clowes' publisher, the writer "is exploring his legal options", and is baffled by the news of LaBeouf's project.
