Redford to play Rather in film about CBS fallout

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Robert Redford will play Dan Rather in a film about the former CBS anchor's disputed report about

President George W. Bush's National Guard service during the Vietnam War.

The film is titled "Truth," and will be adapted from the memoir "Truth And Duty: The Press, The President, And The Privilege Of Power" by former CBS producer Mary Mapes. Cate Blanchett is signed on to play Mapes.

"Truth" will be written and directed by James Vanderbilt. It's the directorial debut of the writer of
"The Amazing Spider-Man," ''Zodiac" and "White House Down."

No studio is yet attached to distribute the film, a Mythology Entertainment production. Shooting is expected to begin in the fall.
