Paul Newman has hinted his final movie appearance before his retirement will be a big screen reunion with his Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid co-star Robert Redford.

The veteran stars - who became Hollywood's two major heartthrobs after teaming up in the hit 1969 adventure and subsequently in 1973's THE STING - have been trying to kick start a reunion project for years, but to no avail.

And Newman has only given himself one more chance of working with his pal, after announcing he'll quit the industry following one more starring role in a movie.

He says, "I hate to talk about anything until the papers are drawn up, but we've been looking for something for 20 years and now we're looking harder. I hope something will come of it."
