A couple weeks ago I stumbled across a set for the film "The Company You Keep". The film stars a literal cornucopia of notable names like Brendan Gleeson, Stanley Tucci, Susan Sarandon, Sam Elliott, Anna Kendrick, Terrance Howard, Nick Nolte as well as Shia Labeouf. To top it all off, the director is Robert Redford, who is pulling double duty as hes in the film as well.
On this particular day I caught a scene of (Robert Redford) Jim Grant, a small town lawyer suspected of murder leaving an apartment and getting into his car. Following Jim out of the apartment is Ben Schulburg (Shia Labeouf), a reporter for an Albany newspaper that is investigating the murder & Jim.
It is hard to hear what is being said because of traffic, but the scene is pretty easy to follow. Ben is pursuing Jim for info/answers to a question he has, and his body language suggests he didnt get it.
The Company You Keep is scheduled for release in either late 2012, or early 2013.
Yes, its true. For the first time since 2007 I will be going to TIFF to get autographs & see many of the biggest names in the industry.
Last TIFF I attended was attended by the likes of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, Sean Penn, Lauren Bacall, Keira Knightley, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, Jodie Foster, Gael Garcia Bernal, Michael Moore, Samuel L Jackson, Viggo Mortensen and many others. It was also highlighted by new fresh faces like Jim Sturgess, Ellen Page, Hayley Atwell and many others.
This year, the list is just as impressive. Icons like Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford are set amongst the 100s of names the fest put out for its guest list. The likes of Matt Damon, Bruce Springsteen, Woody Allen, Robert DeNiro, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen, Edward Norton, Ellen Page, Michael C Hall, Bill Gates, Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke, Steve Nash and hundreds of others are expected to go. Who will be this years fresh new faces to catch? Thats a different question that only time will tell.
Look for my updates on here, and of course, autographs will hopefully be plenty.
if you have any requests...Now is the time to make them. I leave in less than a week.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
