Political action thriller will be Redford's first role since 'Lambs'; he'll also direct
Lem Dobbs (“The Limey”), who adapted the novel by Neil Gordon. Redford will play a former Weather Underground militant wanted by the FBI for 30 years who must go on the run when a young, ambitious reporter exposes his true identity. LaBeouf will play the budding journalist who’s determined to make a name for himself. Wildwood’s Redford and Bill Holderman will produce along with Nicolas Chartier of Voltage, whose Craig J. Flores will exec produce. “This is an edge-of-your-seat thriller about real Americans who stood for their beliefs, thinking they were patriots and defending their country’s ideals against their government.” said Chartier.
