Redford and Levinson Take A Walk in the Woods - SendMeRSS

Written by David Morgan

Barry Levinson has been brought on to direct the Robert Redford starrer A Walk in the Woods, which the seventy one year old actor also plans to produce. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this was once thought to be a potential vehicle for the long-awaited Paul Newman-Robert Redford reunion (the two played Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and then later a pair of con men in The Sting), but from the past tense used in the article, I take it that is no longer a likely possibility.

The film is described as: "A travelogue with wit, satire, political commentary and criticism, the 1998 book is about the attempt by [author Bill] Bryson -- accompanied by an ex-alcoholic friend -- to hit the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, only to get hit right back."

Jason Eberts is producing. So far, no satisfactory draft of the screenplay has been presented yet, and as a result, it could be some time before this film is in production.
