New outdoors film- "A Walk in the Woods" starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte

There is another interesting new outdoors film coming out in September called "A Walk in the Woods," starring Robert Redford (star of "Jeremiah Johnson") and veteran actor Nick Nolte ("48 Hours"). The film is about two aging friends Bill (Redford) and Stephen (Nolte), who, after seeing too many of their friends die or be crippled from old age and disease, attempt to hike the entire 2,000 mile long Appalachian Trail for one last adventure together. Neither has much outdoor experience, so they read books about backpacking and wilderness survival to prepare. What follows is a crazy adventure with the two men trying to complete the insane trip.

A Walk in the Woods is due to be released on Sept 2nd, 2015. Like "The Revenant," I'm adding this one to my "must see" list.

Cheers, Jason
