Brendan Gleeson is said to be joining Robert Redford's film, The Company You Keep.

The Irish star is the latest addition to the star-studded ensemble cast, alongside Twilight actress Anna Kendrick, Terrence Howard and Sam Elliott, reports Variety.

The political drama, which will be directed and co-produced by the Oscar-winning filmmaker, will also star Robert as a former militant who is on the FBI's wanted list for a bank robbery 30 years ago. He has to go on the run when his true identity is exposed by a young, ambitious journalist wanting to make a name for himself (played by Shia LaBeouf).

Anna and Terrence are tipped to play FBI agents, while Brendan would be a retired police chief who first investigated the robbery.

Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Julie Christie, Richard Jenkins, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper and rising actress Brit Marling will also make appearances in the film, which has been adapted by Lem Dobbs from Neil Gordon's novel.

Filming has already started in Vancouver.

If a loved one is clamouring to make a big purchase, sit down together and review your bank account. Once your partner sees the truth of the situation, they'll feel less compelled to splash out on luxuries. This shortage will be temporary, as long as you exercise restraint during lean times. Getting into serious debt will make a tough situation worse.More
