Veteran actor Robert Redford will challenge Hollywood's age prejudices by making a raunchy love story involving two people in "their late 60s".

The Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid actor, 66, is desperate to make a movie about passionate love between an older couple, to be played by actors of the same age.

Redford explains, "I have an idea for a film about two people who were really hot for each other when they were young.

"After they married, eventually the bloom came off the rose - as it often does.

"Forty years later from the first time they met they reconnect.

"And there's a new heat, a different kind of heat and passion because they're in their late 60s.

"It would be a love story about people my age - played by people my age."
