First look at James McAvoy in Robert Redford's The Conspirator
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
There are a few “Lincoln” projects floating around Hollywood right now and it can be tough to keep them straight. We have THE LINCOLN LAWYER with Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei, which has nothing to do with Abraham Lincoln. Then you have the long gestating Steven Spielberg film, which was supposed to chronicle the life of our 16th President. Finally, we have Robert Redford’s THE CONSPIRATOR, which looks at the ensuing murder trial of John Wilkes Booth and the attempt to track down anyone that helped him.
So, as you could probably already tell, these are the first pictures from Robert Redford’s film. The film stars James McAvoy, Robin Wright Penn, Justin Long, Tom Wilkinson, Evan Rachel Wood and Kevin Kline. That’s quite a cast, but the best thing it has going for it is that the great Robert Redford is directing.
