HOLLYWOOD – The first character poster is out for Robert Redford‘s new film Last of the Summer Wine and it looks great.
We reported on the film several months ago (Click HERE), but since then details have been few and far between. But here we see Redford in full glamour mode for his role as Walter ‘Foggy’ Dewhurst, a role made famous by Brian Wilde in the original BBC comedy by Roy Clarke.
Redford, who is joined in the cast by Al Pacino and Nick Nolte, said of the role:
I believe this will be the capping point of my entire career. An actor dreams of a role like Foggy. He is Shakespearean in his complexity, Dickensian in his pomposity and Chekovian in his underlying sadness.
The Last of the Summer Wine will be released in 2016.
