Perhaps in advance of tomorrow’s TIFF line-up announcement, where it’s highly likely to premiere, the first stills from Robert Redford’s political thriller “The Company You Keep” have been released via Collider and they include our first looks at stars Shia LaBeouf and Brit Marling.
LaBeouf and Redford play cat and mouse in the actioner, officially summarized thus: “Jim Grant (Redford), a civil rights lawyer and single father must go on the run when a brash young reporter (LaBeouf), exposes his true identity as a former 1970s radical fugitive wanted for murder. Sparking a nationwide manhunt, Grant sets off on a cross-country journey to clear his name.” The large and impressive supporting cast is rounded out by Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, and Susan Sarandon.
The stills are rather generic and tell us nothing about the characters, but the premise and strong cast are enough to keep us eagerly awaiting its release, now estimated to be sometime in the spring of 2013. In the meantime, we’re hoping we hear its title announced tomorrow morning, alongside other films that will be making their way to Toronto next month.
The two stills of LaBeouf and Marling can be viewed below, and be sure to head to Collider for more.
