Actor Robert Redford is set to portray veteran U.S. newsman Dan Rather in new movie Truth.

The Captain America: The Winter Soldier star will appear alongside Cate Blanchett, who will play Rather's producer Mary Mapes in a film based on her 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and The Privilege of Power.

Truth will centre on the controversy surrounding Rather's 2004 report which claimed former U.S. President George W. Bush was allowed to serve in the Texas Air National Guard in order to avoid fighting in the Vietnam War.

The story faced harsh criticism after it was broadcast and Mapes lost her job at CBS News.

The Amazing Spider-Man screenwriter James Vanderbilt will adapt the screenplay and make his directorial debut on the project, which is expected to begin production this autumn (14).
