Redford, who directs and stars in the upcoming political thriller The Company You Keep, confirmed his role to Spinoff yesterday. “I wanted to do something different," he said. "I wanted to do something just to be different. Something bold, different. And that felt like a good thing to do."

Captain America: The Winter's Soldier will once again star Chris Evans as the Cap, along with Emily VanCamp, Sebastian Stan, Anthonie Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, and Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained).
