Robert Redford to make anti-Bush movie




Against All Enemies based on top book

Robert Redford is set to make a movie criticising US President George W. Bush.

The Hollywood legend is in talks to direct Against All Enemies, an expose of the Bush administration's handling of the al-Qaeda terrorist threat in light of the 11 September attacks on the US.

The movie is an adaptation of the best-selling memoirs by Richard A. Clarke, a former terror expert for the US government.

Against All Enemies was published in 2004 and led to intense criticism of Bush and his political allies, particularly over the decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

Redford, 71, is known for making political statements in his movies.

In 1976, he starred in All the Presidents Men, a movie about the Watergate scandal which led to President Nixon leaving office in 1974.

The scandal rocked the US when it was revealed Republican President Richard Nixon had been bugging the Democrat headquarters leading to his resignation.

Redford's latest directorial effort Lions for Lambs in which he stars alongside Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep, is due out later this year.
