Stanley Tucci and Chris Cooper have joined the cast of Robert Redford's political thriller The Company You Keep.
Robert will do triple duty as leading man, co-producer and director, starring alongside Shia LaBeouf who will play a young, ambitious reporter on a mission to expose a former militant wanted by the FBI (Robert) after stumbling across his identity.
Stanley will play the reporter's editor while Chris has been cast as the brother of Robert's character who takes his niece under his wing when his brother goes into hiding, Screen Daily reports.
Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte and Brit Marling will also star in the movie which is due to begin filming in Vancouver later this month.
The script has been adapted by Lem Dobbs from Neil Gordon's novel.
