Could Robert Redford become the Seventh James Bond?
Redford’s star has been rising in Hollywood in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Pete's Dragon (2016), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Indecent Proposal (1993). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Redford now is – what next?

- It would give Robert Redford a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
