Shia LaBeouf and Robert Redford have both joined the political action thriller “The Company You Keep” at Voltage Pictures and Wildwood Enterprises.
Based on the novel by Neil Gordon, the story chronicles a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years, who must go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious reporter hell-bent on making a name for himself.
Redford plays the former radical at the center of this nationwide manhunt and LaBeouf, the determined journalist doggedly chasing him and his story.
Redford will direct from a script by Lem Dobbs (“Haywire,” “Dark City”). Redford, Bill Holderman and Nicolas Chartier will produce and shooting begins in Vancouver in September.
