Redford to direct Walk In The Woods

Robert Redford could be directing himself in comedy A Walk In The Woods.

The Sundance Festival creator is already attached to star with Nick Nolte as two childhood friends, who reunite in an attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail, in the big-screen adaptation of Bill Bryson's novel.

Richard Linklater had previously been in discussions to direct the movie, but Screen Daily reported that Robert will be taking on directing duties instead.

The film, which has been in development for a number of years, has been adapted by Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt.

Production is expected to begin later in the year.

Robert is no stranger to directing himself, having done so in The Horse Whisperer, Lions For Lambs and the upcoming political thriller The Company You Keep.

The 76-year-old is also due to appear in the Marvel superhero sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and will star in survival drama All Is Lost.
