Shia LaBeouf Cast in 'Company You Keep' with Robert Redford

Shia LaBeouf has signed on for the action thriller, The Company You Keep, opposite Robert Redford, Deadline reports.

The flick, based on the novel by Neil Gordon, centers around a “former Weather Underground militant (Redford) wanted by the FBI for 30 years, who must go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious reporter (LaBeouf) hell-bent on making a name for himself.”

“This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about real Americans who stood for their beliefs, thinking they were patriots and defending their country’s ideals against their government,” Voltage Pictures producer Nicolas Chartier, said in a statement. “It is absolutely amazing to have Shia LaBeouf, arguably the brightest young star in Hollywood today paired with the global icon Robert Redford.”

Sounds like a great project for Shia. I really want him to come in better movies again! He’s so talented and sexy.

# 2

it has Robert Redford so it can’t be all that bad

# 3

Why would someone like Robert Redford want to be associated with that d**che bag?
Ugly, arrogant and obnoxious.
No thank you.

I can’t wait to see him in something other than these Michael Bay movies.

@ugh:

As much as Shia may or may not be a douche, he CAN act, and that is all that matters. Love him !

# 6

Just cant take shia seriously…..him trying
to market himself as a bad boy is laughable

# 7

this movie has thud written all over it…oh yeah, such a long stretch for Shia to play a young hot shot who is ambitious…this dude can’t act he just shows up in films playing himself again and again.

man this guy on fire, another good project with good actors .shia strikes back.a lot of hollywood young actors will kill to be his place.he got it all good looks good acting skills and the love of hollywood execs.for every dollar they invist on him they get 83 in return.wow.

very talented actor, i love him he was great in ll his movies.

Robert Redford’s last movie, The Conspirator was truly great!

SUPER GREAT NEW !!!! SHIA RULE, YOU ARE BEST ACTOR AND SEXY

Shia was so empowers, smart, sexy, deep and a huge talent. He was a genie in New York I love you, The Hole and Disturbia, even in Transformers that it all due respect to everyone. Shia may now choose films that want to do. It is a great opportunity for him to work with Redford. I wish him the best, because it is the best !!!!!!!

That’s a misunderstanding for sure. You’re giving him too much credit.

Shia is the best !!! Final point

Another thriller for Shia? I wish he would do something else

anybody?anybody? @ 07/20/2011 at 11:02 am

It’s hilarious, but for all the haters out there, no matter how many tantrums you throw and how many of his movies you “boycott,” Shia’s still one of the most sough-after, talented actors in Hollywood. And you don’t know any better than the producers and directors who are eager to work with him. I understand, the higher he rises, the more people wanna bring him down. You don’t have to like him, but at least respect the talent.

His Talent is true and Hollywoodland and Movies firm respect him and his work.

Shia is the most repectable actor… so sexy

@sweetness:

You are so right. He really can play a douche really well.

yes yes yes! can’t wait! love u shia!

Didn’t Redford play this guy already in “Sneakers”?
