Ritesh Batra to direct Robert Redford, Jane Fonda

Filmmaker Ritesh Batra has been roped in by Netfilx to direct Robert Redford and Jane Fonda starrer ‘Our Souls At Night’. The 37-year-old director is best known for helming ‘The Lunchbox,’ which was nominated in BAFTA 2013 and won the Grand Golden Rail award at Cannes.

Batra has recently completed his work on the Charlotte Rampling-Jim Broadbent-starrer ‘The Sense of An Ending’.

To be produced by Finola Dwyer alongside Redford and Erin Simms, ‘Our Souls At Night’ is an adaptation of the Kent Haruf novel, reported Deadline. The script is written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber.

Redford and Fonda have previously starred in 1967’s ‘Barefoot in the Park’ and 1979’s ‘The Electric Horseman.’

Haruf’s final novel revolves around two elderly neighbours Addie Moore and Louis Waters, both widowed and lonely.
