Shia LaBeouf Joins Robert Redford’s THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

Shia LaBeouf will star opposite Robert Redford in the political drama The Company You Keep.  Redford will direct from a script by Lem Dobbs (The Limey) based on the novel by Neil Gordon.  Per Variety, “Redford will play a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years who must go on the run when a young, ambitious reporter exposes his true identity. LaBeouf will play the budding journalist who’s determined to make a name for himself.”  Since the film revolves around an obvious political subtext, I expect Redford will be as clumsily condescending and pedantic as he was with Lions for Lambs and The Conspirator.

Earlier this year, LaBeouf was filming on John Hillcoat’s Prohibition-era drama The Wettest County in the World.  He’s also been linked to the Vietnam War drama Pinkville, the historical comedy/drama  College Republicans, and adaptations of Joe Hill’s Horns and John Grisham’s The Associate.

    Yes, doomed before it starts–even if it’s good, this film will be criticized for its anti-government, ’60s liberal agenda…

    Political dramas are too intelligent for most Americans any ways.

    If you thought Lions for Lambs was condescending and pedantic then you completely missed the work’s complex study of the human condition. Lions for Lambs was brilliant, although imperfect at times. Don’t fret if you didn’t “get it”, most people didn’t.
