Movie legend Robert Redford will stun fans by returning to the stage after a 42-year absence.

The 66-year-old screen veteran, who last wowed theatre audiences in the 1962 Broadway, New York play BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, is in talks to star in a revival of WILLIAM SAROYAN's PULITZER PRIZE-winning novel, THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE.

Redford admits he's desperate to tread the boards again, because nothing compares to the thrill of performing live.

He says, "It was a great period of my life and live performance is something I really miss."
