Robert Redford is busy filling out his cast for upcoming thriller The Company You Keep, with Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie and Richard Jenkins the latest to join the project.
Based on Neal Gordon’s novel of the same name, the film will centre upon Redford’s man on the run, a former Weather Underground militant whose identity is exposed by Shia LaBeouf’s pesky journalist. Having flown under the radar for some 30 years, it’s something of a culture shock to find the FBI are right behind him at every turn.
Sarandon and Christie will also play of ex-members of the radical leftist movement, whose safety is threatened when Redford is forced to break cover. Jenkins meanwhile will play a college professor with links to the wanted trio.
Redford’s cast is really beginning to take shape now, with the latest additions joining recent announcements Nick Nolte and Brit Marling in a powerhouse ensemble.
Shooting begins on the project next month, with no release date confirmed as yet.
