Just Announced: Redford as Rather and Another Biblical Epic from Ridley Scott
Posted on July 12, 2014 at 8:00 am
Two intriguing new announcements about upcoming films:
As the first trailer for his Moses epic is released, starring Christian Bale (and a lot of other actors who are not of Middle Eastern ethnicity), Ridley Scott has announced that he will also be making another Biblical epic, this one about David.
And Robert Redford will play CBS newsman Dan Rather in “Truth,” the story of the disastrous presentation of a story about President Bush’s military service that turned out to be based on falsified documents. Cate Blanchett has been cast as Rather’s producer, Mary Mapes.
