Susan Sarandon, Julie Christie and Richard Jenkins have signed on to star in the Robert Redford-directed The Company You Keep, which is an adaptation of Neil Gordon's 2003 novel.

The chilling story centers around an ex-Weather activist who is on the run, when a zealous reporter (Shia LaBeouf) unravels his true identity. The FBI cold case story will take Jason Sinai (Robert Redford), through a nationwide manhunt for a murder during a bank robbery in the 1970's. Susan Sarandon and Julie Christie will play Ex-Weather Underground associates who were involved with the robbery. Richard Jenkins plays a college professor who has information surrounding the militants in hiding.

The script is written by Lem Dobbs.
