The political action thriller will star Redford as a former Weather Underground militant who's been wanted by the FBI for three decades. LaBeouf will play the young, ambitious journalist who exposes the Oscar winner's character.

    "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," producer Nicolas Chartier told Variety. "It is absolutely amazing to have Shia LaBeouf, arguably the brightest young star in Hollywood today, paired with the global icon Robert Redford."

The project is set to begin production in Vancouver this September.
