Long-gestating adaptation begins to take shape.

Nick Nolte (‘Warrior’) is set to co-star alongside Robert Redford in ‘A Walk in the Woods,’ reports 24 Frames.

The movie, which has been in development since 2005, is based on a true story and is adapted from travel writer Bill Bryson’s book of the same name. The story follows a man who returns home after twenty years in England and decides to walk the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail.

Redford will play Bryson while Nolte will play his old friend Stephen Katz who accompanies him on the trail. The movie is being described as a comedic version of ‘Into The Wild.’
