The two legendary actors first appeared on film together 50 years ago and haven't shared the screen since 1979.

For the first time in 37 years, Robert Redford and Jane Fonda will share the screen. Reunited for the fourth time onscreen, Redford and Fonda will once again come together for Netflix's 2017 drama Our Souls at Night

Redford and Fonda, who first appeared together on film 50 years ago in 1966's Marlon Brando-led thriller The Chase, play widowed neighbors in Our Souls at Night, as shown in the first-look image released by Netflix below. In the movie based on Kent Haruf's 2015 novel of the same name, Addie Moore (Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to Louis Waters (Redford) and though they they’d been neighbors for decades, they had little contact. Now all alone in their big houses with their children living far away, Addie seeks to establish a connection and make the most of the rest of the time they have. 

Rounding out the cast are Bruce Dern — another former onscreen beau of Fonda's in 1978's Coming Home and the Tom Buchanan to Redford's Gatsby in 1974's The Great Gatsby — Judy Greer, Matthias Schoenaerts and Iain Armitage. The film is directed by Ritesh Batra.

Fonda and Redford played a married couple separated by Redford's character's imprisonment in The Chase and followed that up a year later to play newlyweds in the 1967 romantic comedy Barefoot in the Park. The pair also starred opposite each other in 1979’s The Electric Horseman.
