If you're an actor, and you're finding it hard to find the kind of roles you'd really like, the best thing you can do is get behind a typewriter and write them yourself. The latest to follow in the steps of, say, Jon Favreau and Edward Burns is Brit Marling, whose credits were relatively few before her acclaimed pair of films, "Another Earth" and "The Sound Of My Voice," both of which she co-wrote, hit Sundance at the start of the year, instantly making her one of the fastest-rising stars around.

"The Conspirator" may have been a little dull, despite an excellent cast, but as Robert Redford was the man behind the sublime "Quiz Show," we're always going to pay attention when the star goes behind the camera, and his latest project, "The Company You Keep," sounds particularly interesting: an adaptation of a well regarded novel by Neil Gordon, with a script by "The Limey" writer Lem Dobbs, the film will see Redford play an ex-Weather Underground militant who's exposed by a young journalist (Shia LaBoeuf), and forced to go on the run. And now, Redford's looks to have landed one of his contemporaries for a role in the project, one who'll likely bring a little crazy on board.

"...I’ve been running for a team of people for a long time and I don’t take any of it back...I’ve learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven’t been allowed to engage in yet,” Shia LaBeouf recently said in the press run up to "Tranformers: Dark Of The Moon" and it looks like he's firmly leaving tentpole movies behind for now. Earlier this spring, he was one of the boys hanging in John Hillcoat's prohibition-era drama "The Wettest County" and now LaBeouf is ready to star and be directed by one of Hollywood's great legends.

It appears that one of the most enigmatic figures in Hollywood right now is...Robert Redford? Yep, kind of. The legendary actor/director was said to be attached to Brian Helgeland's Jackie Robinson biopic earlier this spring in the role of Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers executive who helped the ball player break the color barrier. But the film was picked up by Legendary Pictures earlier today and their press release made no mention or Redford or Rickey at all, with Deadline intimating that that the thesp was not involved. Anyway, 24 Frames is sticking to their story -- sort of -- and even more, they're tossing out another possible Redford project.

Only I wouldn't have come near 'All The President's Men'" -- William Goldman, "Adventures In The Screen Trade: A Personal View Of Hollywood And Screenwriting"
