By Marcina Zaccaria ,

Robert Redford, the 77 year-old veteran of the silver screen, says he plans to continue acting in films.

Redford recently gained acclaim for the movie All is Lost. According to The Hollywood Reporter, at a lunch at New York's Lowell Hotel, Redford spoke about the screenplay by J.C. Chandor.

“Wow! I mean, this is really bold," he said. "And then once we talked, I said, 'This is a chance for me to go back to my roots and really be an actor.' By taking away dialogue, taking away voiceovers, taking away special effects, it was pure cinema the way cinema used to be."

Redford said he hopes to keep acting after completing A Walk in the Woods and making Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The rigorous demands of shooting All is Lost has earned than one reward this season. Redford took home the New York Critics Best Actor Award and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

Redford’s career, which has spanned for 50 years, began in 1960 with a role on the television series Maverick. He has been a director, producer, and actor. His Sundance Film Festival celebrated its 30th anniversary in Park City, Utah this year, according to Variety.
