Aug 19, 6:28 AM
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Robert Redford is getting back into the Washington scene with a film about a woman executed as an accessory in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Redford plans to direct "The Conspirator," the story of Mary Surratt, a boardinghouse owner hanged after she was convicted of aiding Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth.
Redford's spokesman says "The Conspirator" could begin production late this year.
The film joins another high-profile Lincoln-related saga. Steven Spielberg has the film biography "Lincoln" in development, though no production date has been set.
