Tom Wilkinson, Evan Rachel Wood Join Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator” 


Robert Redford has a fantastic cast for “The Conspirator,” the drama he is directing about the assassination of President Lincoln. James Solomon wrote the script.

James McAvoy will star as Frederick Aiken, the war hero who is assigned to defend Robin Wright Penn’s Mary Surratt, the only female charged in the conspiracy to kill the president. Justin Long, in his first dramatic role, will play McAvoy’s soldier friend who lost a limb in the Civil War.



Now, Tom Wilkinson, Evan Rachel Wood, Kevin Kline and Alexis Bledel are joining the production. Wilkinson will star as Reverdy Johnson, the former attorney general and mentor of McAvoy’s character.



Wood will play Surratt’s daughter, Anna, and Kline will star as Lincoln’s War Secretary Edwin Stanton. Bledel will lay Aiken’s wife, Sarah Weston.

Shooting is going on right now in Savannah, Ga.
