Robert Redford‘s The Company You Keep sounds like another sort-of interesting conspiracy thriller. The trailer is lacking that punch that films like this desperately need, but its promising cast is what’s keeping my attention.
Shia LaBeouf is coming hot off of John Hillcoat‘s Lawless to lead Redford’s film, alongside Brit Marling, Chris Cooper, Anna Kendrick, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Terrence Howard and Brendan Gleeson.
It’s kind of hard to deny a cast list that strong, especially with such a variety of younger and older talent. LaBeouf is sticking out as the biggest wild card, but that could prove to be a good thing.
The Company You Keep has been picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for a US release.
