Justin Long is a Co- Conspirator

ON

Justin Long is joining James McAvoy and Robin Wright Penn in The Conspirator, the historical drama that Robert Redford is directing, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film tells the story of Confederate sympathizer Mary Surratt (Wright Penn), who was tried as a conspirator in the Lincoln assassination, and Col. Frederick Aiken (McAvoy), who reluctantly agreed to defend her before a military tribunal.

Long plays a soldier who lost a limb in the Civil War and is McAvoy’s best friend and conscience.

The movie shoots in Georgia this month.
