Netflix has set Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox and The Sense Of An Ending) to direct Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in Our Souls At Night. Batra will direct the adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel, which has been described as in the vein of Bridges of Madison County
Redford and Fonda have previous history, having worked together on 1967’s Barefoot in the Park and 1979’s The Electric Horseman and this romantic drama seems like a good fit for the pair.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of too many CGI movies and I’m happy to see two old pros in a film that has real characterisation. Netflix is really delivering on talent and content – keep it up!
