Robert Redford is in negotiations to join the cast of "Captain America: Winter Soldier" at Marvel Studios.

The story continues the adventures of Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) and will focus on his relationship with sidekick Bucky (Sebastian Stan), who in the comics returns as the brainwashed assassin Winter Soldier.

Redford will play an older member of government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. in a role said to be similar to Ralph Fiennes in last year's "Skyfall".

Joe and Anthony Russo helm the project and shooting kicks off in May in locations around the United States.
