Shia LaBeouf The Company You Keep

Well, well, well -- things just got a bit more interesting for everyone figuring out their schedules for Venice and TIFF, as Sony Pictures Classics have put their stamp of quality on one of the higher profile acquisition films headed into the fall festival season.

Robert Redford's "The Company You Keep" has been snapped up by the arthouse outlet, marking a more mainstream effort from the shingle than we generally see. Directed by and also starring Redford, the film features a massive ensemble including Shia LeBeouf, Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, and Susan Sarandon, in the Lem Dobbs (”Kafka,” “The Limey," "Haywire”) penned story that follows a former Weather Underground militant Jim Grant (Redford), wanted by the FBI for a Bank Of Michigan robbery 30 years ago, 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.

The film makes its world premeriere at Venice shortly, will head to TIFF and we presume is a contendeder now to show up at Telluride. No release date yet, but if this bowls over critics, expect SPC to do some calendar shuffling.
