Dan Rather Political Drama ‘Truth’ to Shoot in Australia

Robert Redford- and Cate Blanchett-starring political drama “Truth” is to shoot in Australia from early 2015.

The decision to shoot in Sydney, New South Wales, for eight weeks was announced by NSW deputy premier and minister for the arts Troy Grant.

The NSW government helped secure the production with finance from its NSW Trade & Investment’s State Investment Attraction Scheme.

A substantial amount of post- production work will also be conducted in the state, and Grant said that the movie would benefit the state to the tune of more than A$11 million.

James Vanderbilt, who wrote Zodiac” and both “The Amazing Spider-Man” scripts, will make his directorial debut along with writing and producing through his Mythology Entertainment banner along with Brad Fischer, William Sherak and Mikkel Bondesen.

The film will center on Dan Rather’s 2004 report on CBS’ “60 Minutes Wednesday” about a  series of memos critical of President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service record that had been discovered in the files of the president’s former commanding officer. The authenticity of those documents was called into question, which led to claims that the memos were forgeries.
