The documentary takes its name from “All the President’s Men,” the 1976 film directed by Alan Pakula in which Mr. Redford and Dustin Hoffman portrayed Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Washington Post reporters who exposed the Watergate affair.

The New York Times said Mr. Woodward, Mr. Bernstein, former Washington Post Editor Ben Bradlee and Mr. Redford gathered in Mr. Woodward’s living room in March and discussed the project.

“What’s the legacy of Watergate? What do we understand? What are some of the lessons? It’s been a long time,” Mr. Woodward, the author of several best-selling political books, told the newspaper.

Mr. Woodward said the documentary would touch upon the role of Mark Felt, a former associate director of the FBI who in 2005 revealed himself to be Deep Throat, the long-anonymous Watergate whistleblower.
