Shia LaBeouf Will Chase Robert Redford in The Company You Keep

Ladies?

Shia LaBeouf and Robert Redford will star in the upcoming drama The Company You Keep, which Redford will also direct. LaBeouf plays the ambitious journalist who reveals Redford's former identity as a member of the Weather Underground, who was wanted by the FBI for decades. A manhunt ensues! The film is based on the 2003 novel of the same name. First Harrison Ford, then Michael Douglas, maybe Warren Beatty, and now Robert Redford: Shia-LaBeouf-and-an-aging-icon is the new Shia-LaBeouf-and-an-exploding-robot. [Deadine]
