Batra To Helm Redford & Fonda’s Netflix Film

Ritesh Batra (“The Lunchbox”) has been set to direct Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in the film adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel “Our Souls At Night” which has been setup at Netflix.

Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber penned the script about a widow who pays an unexpected visit to a widower neighbor in Colorado. They’ve known each other for decades, were friends with their late spouses, and their children are gone leaving them alone. She seeks to establish a romantic connection and make the most of the rest of the time they have.

Finola Dwyer is also onboard as producer alongside Redford. Redford and Fonda starred together in 1967’s “Barefoot in the Park” and 1979’s “The Electric Horseman” and have long wanted to work together again.
