Brit Marling joins the Company of Redford and LaBeouf

Up-and-coming ‘it’ girl Brit Marling is in talks to star opposite Shia LaBeouf and Robert Redford in the new political thriller The Company You Keep, Variety reports.

Marling has been in high demand since her film Another Earth debuted at Sundance earlier in the year. Her performance in the film, which also screened at MIFF, impressed us greatly.

As previously reported, Redford will star 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, endangering both their lives in the process. The nature of Marling’s role is unknown at this point.

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

Discuss: Did anyone else out there catch Another Earth at MIFF?
