Actor Robert Redford has formally announced that he will be retiring after his final film, The Old Man & The Gun. The 81-year-old star has been in the business for 60 years, so it’s no surprise as to why he’s deciding it’s time to call it quits! His final film is set to hit theaters in September of this year.

Redford did an interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which he talked about his impending retirement. He said, “Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and [I’ll] move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21. I thought, Well, that’s enough. And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?”

Redford will be playing the role of Forrest Tucker in the film, alongside actors Elisabeth Moss, Sissy Spacek, Casey Affleck, and Danny Glover. Only two years ago, Redford had revealed that he was getting tired of acting and the grueling hours of being on-set were getting to him. He additionally revealed what he would rather be doing at this point in his life instead of acting.

At the time, he said, “It’s hard for me to sit around and do take after take after take. At this point in my life, age 80, it’d give me more satisfaction because I’m not dependent on anybody. It’s just me, just the way it used to be, and so going back to sketching ― that’s sort of where my head is right now.”
