Los Angeles, May 7 - Actress Emma Thompson will be seen in A Walk in the Woods, a big screen adaptation of travel writer Bill Bryson's 1998 memoir.

Robert Redford originally considered directing after acquiring the film rights in 2005, but now Ken Kwapis is directing the film scripted by Little Miss Sunshine writer Michael Arndt.
