Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Elliott Join THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

     October 10, 2011


Robert Redford is assembling quite the ensemble for his next directorial project The Company You Keep. Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott and 11-year-old America’s Got Talent finalist Jackie Evancho have joined the cast of the drama. Based on the novel by Neal Gordon, the story centers on a former Weather Underground militant who goes on the run after an ambitious young journalist exposes his true identity. Redford will be pulling double duty, as he’ll also star as the Weather Underground militant in the film. Shia LaBeouf is onboard to take on the role of the journalist. Other cast members include Brit Marling, Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie, Richard Jenkins, Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci, and Chris Cooper.

Hit the jump for the details on who Kendrick, Howard, Gleeson, and Elliott will play.

She provides him with the information regarding Redford’s character that puts LaBeouf on his trail.  Howard is set as a senior FBI agent who has been chasing Redford for years. He takes the point position on the task force who is assigned to seek out and take down the remaining Weather Underground fugitives. Gleeson plays the retired Michigan Chief of Police who investigated a key case in the 1960s. In a spot-on bit of casting, Elliott will play Christie’s employer and former lover who works in the marijuana trade. Finally, Evancho will take on the role of Redford’s daughter.

All in all, this is a wonderfully impressive cast. Hopefully The Company You Keep is quite a bit better than Redford’s recent output.
