Redford told the magazine:
"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 plays Forrest Tucker, a real-life bank robber in "Old Man and the Gun."
Fox Searchlight is set to release the film also starring Danny Glover, Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek, on Oct. 5.
