Robert Redford Says He Is Retiring

Robert Redford is retiring from acting at age 81.  He said his final project is The Old Man & The Gun which debuts September 28.  When asked if that is it for everything to do with movie making,including directing, he said:

“Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and [I’ll] move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21,” Redford explained to EW. “I thought, ‘Well, that’s enough.’ And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?”

When EW asked him if he would still direct films, he said, “We’ll see about that”
