Voltage Pictures and Wildwood Enterprises have announced the stars of The Company You Keep: Shia LaBeouf and Robert Redford.
Written by Lem Dobbs, the political thriller tells the tale of an FBI fugitive and ex Weather Underground militant (Redford) who is forced to go on the run after an ambitious reporter (LaBeouf) exposes his true identity.
Voltage producer Nicolas Chartier is very enthusiastic about the project, stating:
This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about real Americans who stood for their beliefs, thinking they were patriots and defending their country's ideals against their government. It is absolutely amazing to have Shia LaBeouf, arguably the brightest young star in Hollywood today paired with the global icon Robert Redford.
The project is set to begin filming in September.
If Shia and Rob are a part of it, count us in!
