Robert Redford has dropped out of plans to direct the 9/11 thriller “Against All Enemies” which aimed to begin shooting this Fall.
Based on Richard A. Clarke’s best-selling memoir, Redford has been developing the project for years. Clarke was a counterterrorism adviser to three presidents, who charged in his book that the George W. Bush administration prioritized Iraq above threats from Al Qaeda both before and after the September 11th attacks.
Jamie Vanderbilt penned the script. Scheduling conflicts are said to be to blame for Redford’s exit with the actor/filmmaker set to do promotions for both “A Walk in the Woods” and “Truth” which he stars in.
