Shailene Woodley, best known for her work in The Fault in Our Stars and Snowden, has joined stars such as Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf in the upcoming independent crime drama, After Exile.

LaBeouf will play an ex-con who, following release from prison for killing an innocent man after a violent robbery, must return to his old life with his father (De Niro) in order to save his younger brother from a life of drugs and crime. De Niro plays another ex-con suffering from alcoholism and guilt.

Woodley will play a woman who grew up with LaBeouf's character and suffered through a troubled relationship. After he leaves prison, she tries to restart their relationship.

Joshua Michael Stern, whose credits include the Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, and the Epix series, Graves, will handle directing duties. 

Woodley received an Emmy nomination for her role as one of the Monterey Five and a sexual assault survivor in the first season of Big Little Lies. She starred in the 2018 drama Adrift and will be seen in the Drake Doremus movie Endings, Beginnings, which premieres next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

After Exile is expected to begin filming in November in Philadelphia.
