Robert Redford and Shia LaBeouf go head to head in political thriller

Acting luminaries Robert Redford and Shia LaBeouf …. well, luminary Robert Redford and actor Shia LaBeouf will team up for the political thriller The Company You Keep.

Deadline has the press release, which describes Redford’s character as “a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years”. LaBeouf will play a young journalist who exposes his identity and attempts to hunt him down for a story, no doubt endangering both their lives in the process.

The script has been written by Lem Dobbs (Dark City, The Limey). The Company You Keep will be directed and produced by Redford.

Discuss: A welcome return to the realm of political thrillers for Redford! Does the presence of LaBeouf lessen your anticipation, or enhance it?
