At the very least, it’s hard not to admire Shia LaBeouf’s attempts to stretch himself artistically. Whether it’s appearing naked in a Sigur Ros music video or starring in Lars von Trier’s upcoming film, “Nymphomaniac,” it seems like LaBeouf is doing everything he can to distance himself from his Disney/Transformers past. Most recently, he’s been showing off some of his skills behind the camera, directing the new music video for the Nashville duo, Future Unlimited.

Shia LaBeouf might be making more headlines for his, uh, eccentric foray into theater and emailing Alec Baldwin than for his movie work of late, but it doesn't change the fact that he's got a compelling, engaging screen presence, and he's been making some bold and interesting choices since breaking free of the "Transformers" franchise.

Say what you will about Shia LaBeouf and his tendency to sometimes run his mouth and/or perhaps engage in unsavoury off-set antics, but dude has some good taste couple with what we can only imagine is helluva agent. Name any other actor LaBeouf's age who can already count Robert Redford and Lars Von Trier among his collaborators. That's the right, the list is pretty small. And just a day after it was revealed he would be potentially teaming with Robert De Niro on the drama "Spy's Kid" now he's getting set to pair up with one of the biggest stars on the goddamn planet.

Oh man, if this movie goes south like Shia LaBeouf's mooted Broadway turn with Alec Baldwin, those leaked emails are gonna be epic. Not that we would wish ill on a movie production, and if you look past the title, there is actually something potentially interesting brewing between LaBeouf and Robert De Niro, of all people.

Review: Robert Redford's 'The Company You Keep' Is An Unconvincing Bit Of Agitprop

The third film in Robert Redford’s recent series of stillborn, bleeding heart dramas, "The Company You Keep" is a busy but inert civic-minded thriller. As a director, Redford has yet to break his recent habit of using hackneyed dialogue to talk down to his audience with Aaron Sorkin-esque dialogue that authoritatively spells out his talking points. But unlike "Lions for Lambs," an impressively incensed civics lesson that thinks it’s a drama, "The Company You Keep" is too cool of a film to be admired for its creator’s chutzpah alone. In fact, it’s probably the most frustrating of Redford’s recent films because it has a pseudo-contemplative atmosphere to it, one that superficially begs viewers to reflect upon how far they would go for their convictions. Political apathy is the real enemy in "The Company You Keep," making it pitiably ironic that Redford’s latest is as unmoving as it is.

Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep” comes to theaters in a few weeks and, for those curious to check this film out, a whopping eight clips have landed online. The first thing that will pop out at you upon viewing the clips is how ridiculously stacked this cast is. Redford, Shia LaBeouf, Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Brendan Gleeson, Brit Marling, Anna Kendrick, Nick Nolte and Terrence Howard are all featured in the eight clips. If that’s not enough, how about some great, seasoned character actors like Sam Elliott, Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci, and Chris Cooper? Holy mackerel.

The Company You Keep, Shia LaBeouf, Brit Marling
Five years after Robert Redford’s disappointing anti-war drama "Lions for Lambs" the 76-year-old actor, director and Sundance mogul is back in similar territory. He directs and stars in the forthcoming "The Company You Keep" which tells the story of Jim Grant, a public interest lawyer and single father living in Albany, New York. Shia LaBoeuf’s brash reporter exposes Grant as a fugitive, wanted for a murder he allegedly committed in his days as an anti-war radical. Grant is forced to go on the run and find the person who might be able to clear his name.

Shia LaBeouf: misunderstood actor, hellraiser or dedicated artist? Perhaps all three. He's certainly made no secret of his methods, which have included getting drunk on moonshine for "Lawless" to the point of nearly causing Mia Wasikowska to exit the movie. He also dropped acid to help in his preparation for "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman." But his rigorous approach doesn't always make him friends with his colleagues, and the news yesterday that he had left the Broadway production of "Orphans" was just the tip of the iceberg.

That sound you hear? It's the price of Shia Lebeouf's production cast insurance slowly nudging upwards, as after his acid-dropping avenue for "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman" led him to a better awareness of his character, his method antics while filming John Hillcoat's “Lawless” have been revealed as slightly more intense by his female co-star.

What are moral and ethical lines of digging into someone's past, particularly someone who might have been affiliated with a horrible action, but all in the name of the greater good? These seem to be the thematic tangles that Robert Redford will look to uncover in his latest directorial effort, "The Company You Keep." And a brand new trailer has arrived showing off a mix of ideals and thrills coming for you this spring.
