Thompson for A Walk In The Woods

Emma Thompson is to join Robert Redford in A Walk In The Woods.

The independent movie is adapted from comedy travel writer Bill Bryson's book A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America On The Appalachian Trail about his attempts to trek the trail from Georgia to Maine, with his friend Stephen Katz.

According to Variety, Emma has joined the project along with Parks And Recreation funnyman Nick Offerman and Flight Of The Conchords star Kristen Schaal.

Nick Nolte will also star.

He's Just Not That Into You's Ken Kwapis will direct from a script by Little Miss Sunshine writer Michael Arndt.

Redford first acquired the movie rights in 2005 and directors Larry Charles, Chris Columbus and Barry Levinson have previously been linked to the project.
