First trailer lands for Robert Redford's long-awaited Bill Bryson memoir A Walk In The Woods
By Dave Lancaster
Bill Bryson's travel memoir A Walk In The Woods has been journeying its way onto the big screen for many years now.
It's always been something of a passion project for star and director Robert Redford who at one point was close to getting his old Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid buddy Paul Newman to co-star with him. Newman's death put a stop to that and eventually Nick Nolte filled his shoes and Emma Thompson also joined.
Now, the film is finally finished and the first trailer has landed and impresses greatly.
Still evident after half a century on screen is Redford's magnetism. The actor recently dominated the awards circuit for his work in All Is Lost that saw him stranded at sea on his own. This is more like "All Is Found" with Redford's trek to reconnect with nature and himself instead of a fight for survival.
Directed by Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You), the film arrives in cinemas this September. Check out the trailer below and the official synopsis.
Legendary actor Robert Redford sets off for A WALK IN THE WOODS as Bill Bryson, based on the 1998 travel writer’s best-selling memoir.
Upon his arrival back in the United States following two decades in the UK, Bryson wants to find a way to reconnect with his homeland. Impulsively he decides to hike a section of the longest continuous footpath in the world, The Appalachian Trail, 1000 arduous miles stretching from Maine to Georgia, an expedition men half his age struggle to complete.
Fearing for his life, his wife Cathy (Emma Thompson) refuses to allow him to do a solo trek but is unsuccessful in persuading any of his friends to accompany him. When his old buddy Katz (Nick Nolte), a crude, overweight, recovering alcoholic, calls him out of the blue and offers to accompany him, Bryson has no choice other than to accept.
Thus begins an adventure as they encounter weird and wonderful characters and face hilarious trials and tribulations along the way. The men gamely persevere and together they learn that some roads are better left untravelled.
Directed by Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You) and featuring a stellar cast against a beautiful backdrop, join Robert Redford and Nick Nolte for A WALK IN THE WOODS on September 18.
