Redford in a Captain America movie?

Sounds absurdly far-fetched, but even ol’Sundance could use a big payday, now and then.

Robert Redford, according to Deadline.com, is in talks to take a role in the “Captain America” stand-alone sequel, “Winter Soldier.”

He’d be “a senior leadership official” with S.H.I.E.L.D., where Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is the face of the “company.”

The April 2014 film would be quite a departure for Redford, not least because it’s a guaranteed hit in a genre he’s never given a second thought to. Doesn’t sound too demanding, could be a nice payday and a way to stay relevant to the movie audience (younger moviegoers) a bit longer.
