Redford Turns To Indie Movies To Keep Afloat

Screen legend Robert Redford has turned his back on Hollywood to embrace the independent movie scene - because he's now too old to have an impact in mainstream cinema.

The Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid actor, who founded the annual Sundance Film Festival in Utah to cultivate indie filmmakers, believes his age no longer means he can star in studio blockbusters, so he's concentrating on smaller projects.

The 66-year-old says, "The business follows the youth market so that excludes me from so many projects. I have to look to the independent film scene if I want to keep working.

"It doesn't upset me either as a filmmaker or actor because it was to foster independent movies that I created Sundance."
