The Hollywood veteran wants to expand his independent movie showcase, which is held annually in Park City, Utah, to the Brooklyn area, reports New York Post gossip column Page Six.
According to the publication, Redford is in talks to launch a "large-scale New York festival" that would rival the city's yearly Tribeca Film Festival, which De Niro co-founded in 2002 with producer Jane Rosenthal.
"We continue to seek new programmatic opportunities in regions across the country and internationally," said a Sundance spokesperson.
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival will kick off in Utah next Thursday and will feature movies from Daniel Radcliffe, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried.
