Robert Redford

Lions for Lambs
he’ll also be producing and acting in the political drama, co-starring
Meryl Streep
and Tom Cruise.
RT has received
for the film, opening everywhere November 2.

Derek Luke and
Michael Pena,
who play Malley’s Afghan-stranded students, out in the field.

The film was written by
