Redford Takes a Walk in the Woods


First talked about back in August of 2005, Robert Redford’s A Walk in the Woods is finally a go.

Redford told The Associated Press that his next film project is an adaptation of the best-selling 1998 Bill Bryson book about hiking the Appalachian Trail.

He will produce the film and star as Bryson, and Barry Levinson is expected to direct it.

After that, Redford said he’ll tackle the “inside, down-to-the mats story” of how Branch Rickey helped Jackie Robinson break into major league baseball in 1947.
