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 exposé of the Bush administration's handling of the al-Qaeda terrorist threat in light of the September 11 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 President's 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.
