I’ve already told you about Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem – and more than once – but the status of several more films from Voltage Pictures upcoming slate has now come to light. Voltage are a sales and financing company, and they’re now out in Berlin to drum up interest for their projects at the EFM – European Film Market. Screen Daily have the dish on the lot.
Robert Redford‘s “romantic thriller” The Company You Keep seems to be the one getting the big push. Set to film in July, this one suits Redford down to the ground as it “tells of a former radical activist who goes on the run for the sake of his young daughter after his identity is revealed.” I assume director Redford will also take the lead role of Jim Grant, former Weather Underground man who played a part in a “bank robbery gone wrong” because, frankly, there’s nobody better for the part. And while there’s definitely an obvious whiff of Sneakers about this, Neil Gordon’s source novel is very different in most respects.
