Shia LaBeouf is set to team up with Robert Redford for the political thriller The Company You Keep.

The Transformers star will play a young, ambitious reporter who goes on the chase for a former militant wanted by the FBI (Robert) after exposing him, reported Deadline.

Robert will do triple duty as leading man, co-producer and director, working from a script penned by Lem Dobbs and based on the novel by Neil Gordon.

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

"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."

Filming is set to begin in Vancouver in September.

Shia - currently on screens in the third film of the robot franchise Dark Of The Moon - has completed work on The Wettest County In The World alongside Tom Hardy.
