Last time we saw Robert Redford behind the camera, he delivered the forgettable, by-the-numbers legal drama The Conspirator, but now he appears to be stepping up his game a bit with his next project. It’s called The Company You Keep, a film that boasts one of the most impressive cast lists I’ve seen in quite a while.
Today, thanks to The Playlist, we have the trailer for the film which comes off as a drama with a splash of thrills.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
The Company You Keep chronicles the story of a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years, who must go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious reporter hell-bent on making a name for himself.
As for the cast, it includes Robert Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Jenkins, and Susan Sarandon. How’s that for an ensemble?
The Company You Keep will be premiering at the Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, but does not yet have an official release date.
