Brit Marling Sought for 'One Shot,' 'The Company You Keep'

By Thomas Leupp, Hollywood.com Staff

After breaking out in spectacular fashion at Sundance, writing, producing, and starring in not one but two festival favorites - Mike Cahill's Another Earth and Zal Batmanglij's Sound of My Voice - Brit Marling has emerged as one of the most sought-after talents in Hollywood. Vulture reports that Marling is being pursued to star in two high-profile projects, both with some pretty impressive names attached: The Company You Keep, starring Robert Redford and Shia Labeouf, and One Shot, starring Tom Cruise. The former is a political drama about a Weather Underground activist and the young reporter who exposed him, the latter an adaptation of a "Jack Reacher" thriller by Lee Childs.

Marling's participation in either project appears partly contingent on whether The East, a thriller she co-wrote with Batmanglij, is able to attract a "big name" actor before its self-appointed October 11 start date. The film is currently in development under the Fox Searchlight banner, but the studio won't move forward without a proper headliner. Both The Company You Keep and One Shot are scheduled to start shooting in September, and so Marling is faced with a choice. Not exactly Sophie's Choice, but a choice nonetheless.
