Robert Redford‘s upcoming film The Company You Keep is based on Neil Gordon’s novel of the same name. It tells the tale of a civil rights lawyer named Jim Grant (played by Robert Redford) and single father who go on the run when a brash young reporter (played by Shia LaBeouf) exposes his true identity as a former 1970s radical fugitive wanted for murder. As their actions spark a nationwide manhunt, Grant sets off on a cross-country journey to clear his name.
Until now this project has been flying under the radar but sporting an impressive cast which includes Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Nick Nolte, Anna Kendrick, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper to name but a few, it looks to be one of 2013’s most anticipated releases.

While the cast is very impressive, if there’s one young film personality on the rise and destined for stardom, it’s Brit Marling. Another Earth was awesomely simple but impacting sci-fi (like Primer or Time Crimes) and Sound of my Voice was just amazing. That said, I’d see this film just for her. She’s got the dramatic chops and with a cast like the one above I cannot wait to see this…but that’s just me. This sound interesting to anyone else?? Oh and thanks to Collider for the heads up!
