New Looks At Robert Redford & Susan Sarandon In 'The Company You Keep,' And Ben Affleck & Bryan Cranston In 'Argo'

Images from that big Toronto announcement this morning keep coming, and two adult-minded thrillers from stars-turned-directors are next up. We had the first look at Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" yesterday, with images of Redford (who plays the lead role, a '60s radical on the run), Shia LaBeouf (the journalist pursuing him) and Brit Marling (Redford's daughter). Now a new picture of Redford, this time being pursued at night, has arrived on the TIFF website along with the first look of Susan Sarandon in the film. The film is getting a gala premiere but not a world premiere, suggesting heavily that it's likely to be bowing at Venice, as rumored, a week or two beforehand -- that news should be confirmed on Thursday.

The Company You Keep Robert Redford

Images from that big Toronto announcement this morning keep coming, and two adult-minded thrillers from stars-turned-directors are next up. We had the first look at Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" yesterday, with images of Redford (who plays the lead role, a '60s radical on the run), Shia LaBeouf (the journalist pursuing him) and Brit Marling (Redford's daughter). Now a new picture of Redford, this time being pursued at night, has arrived on the TIFF website along with the first look of Susan Sarandon in the film. The film is getting a gala premiere but not a world premiere, suggesting heavily that it's likely to be bowing at Venice, as rumored, a week or two beforehand -- that news should be confirmed on Thursday.

The TIFF logline for the film (written by "The Limey" writer Lem Dobbs) reads "Robert Redford directs and stars in this gripping political thriller about a young journalist (Shia LaBeouf) who stumbles upon the story of his career when he uncovers the identity of a wanted ex-radical activist (Redford) who has been underground for five decades." The impressive cast also includes Terrence Howard, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper and Nick Nolte.

Meanwhile, one film having its world premiere at TIFF is Ben Affleck's "Argo," and a new image of the actor-director in the film, as well as "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, has been unveiled too. The cast for the terrific-looking, based-in-fact drama also includes John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Barry Livingston, Tate Donovan, Alan Arkin, Victor Garber, Scoot McNairy, Rory Cochrane, Christopher Denham, Kerry Bishe, Chris Messina and Clea DuVall, and the synopsis involves "a CIA 'exfiltration' expert who concocts an outlandish plan to get six stranded Americans out of Tehran after the 1979 invasion of the American embassy — by having them masquerade as a Hollywood film crew."

"Argo" hits theaters a month or so after TIFF, on October 10th, while "The Company You Keep" doesn't yet have a distributor.
