Redford to direct A Walk in the Woods

May 9th, 2013 by bash Comments

Robert Redford will take over the directing duties for A Walk in the Woods.

Richard Linklater was previously attached to direct.

Screen Daily reports that Redford will also star alongside Nick Nolte in the adaptation of Bill Bryson’s 1998 novel.

A synopsis for the movie reads:

The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Toy Story 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt has penned the script.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
