Hollywood legend, Robert Redford has blasted reports he plans to quit the SUNDANCE INSTITUTE.

The INDECENT PROPOSAL star, 67, founded Utah, America's independent film festival in 1980, and insists he will continue playing a pivotal role in the annual showcase.

Redford says about the rumours, "Once a story like that gets out, oh. No, it isn't true, and there's nothing I can do about it.

"It's out of nowhere, I don't know where it came from.

"I think rumour turns into fact pretty quick.

"Had anybody called to ask before the story, I would have said no."
