Robert Redford and Paul Newman want to make Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods a movie! The duo haven't worked together on a movie since the Sting in 1973, but apparently they've been looking for a final project together for a while. Redford will play Bill, and Paul will play Steve. But will Robert Redford don a beard and lose his hunkability? I guess we'll see...I think he'd look good in anything. "Redford said he hopes that A Walk in the Woods could be their swansong. "That might be something for Paul Newman and me, if we're not too old. That's if Paul can hang on long enough and we can get him on the Appalachian Trail before he gets into a wheelchair," he recently joked about his famously fit friend.

I'm pretty jazzed about this whole idea. Just this one little mention of it already has me acting like a 6yr old who can't wait for the pizza delivery. When they were talking about it at the Tribeca film festival in New York, Julia Roberts said she wanted to play Cynthia, Bill's wife. This cracked me up. If she wants to be in it that bad she'd be better off as a walk-on hiker. As for Paul, they are saying it will be Newman's final movie. Is this old news to you? I feel like I'm the last to know because they've apparently been talking about it all year on the movie boards. Anyway, I think it's going to be great and I hope Bill gets a heapload of money for it!

I heard about this last year .. but the topic seems to have gone dead. If anyone has any updates, I'd love to hear them. Maybe there's room for me as an extra?

This is very exciting, I'm reading the book right now and would love to see it on the bigscreen. Here are a list of links you can go to concerning the movie:

Just finished the book last month. A great read. Can't believe it took me two years to get to it.

Anybody hearing any rumors on the movie? Haven't heard a peep about it.

Doesn't look good for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid...

I think Stagefright is right. It's time to move on, and cast the guy from King of Queens as Katz. It would be a perfect fit.

Looks like Redford is going to move forward without Newman...

Make sure you check out the back and forth comments between "Weicher" and "dahluzz" at the bottom of the article. They are kind of commical.

AS much as I'd love to see that book put onto the big screen i also wonder what'll happen to the trail as we all know it. I mean, will it end up with litter everywhere, gear strewn about. I mean it would be good for the AT to get some publicity, but if this movie were to be made you have to wonder about the impact as every tom dick and harry set off on thier own "Walk in the Woods"
