Redford, LeBeouf team up for political thriller

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap) - Robert Redford famously played investigative reporter Bob Woodward in "All The President's Men," but for his next project, he'll be running from a journalist.

Voltage Pictures and Redford's Wildwood Enterprises announced said Tuesday that they are teaming Redford with Shia LaBeouf in "The Company You Keep," a thriller about a former Weather Underground militant who has been living under a fake identity for 30 years.

A journalist, played by LaBeouf, learns his true identity and Redford's character goes on the run.

Redford is also directing the movie, which Lem Dobbs ("Haywire," "The Limey") wrote based on Neil Gordon's novel.

The movie is in preproduction and will film in Vancouver in September.
