Now that Fury has evidence that the WSC committed a war crime on US soil, I would hope that he has some leverage there.
Perhaps Redford's character is a former agent working inside the WSC who wants Fury's job. That's an option I'd like better than having Maria Hill try to oust Fury, if only because the way Smulders plays the character she doesn't have to balls to credibly challenge Fury.
Lol, imagine anyone in the MCU taking orders from Cobie Smulders.
Maybe she needed to be played by someone a bit older like Jennifer Connelly to seem more realistic.

Don't forget the Great Gatsby and Brubaker.
But if he doesn't like older movies, then there's always Lions for Limbs [sic
] with Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep and Andrew Garfield.
