ROBERT REDFORD & CATE BLANCHETT

READY FOR "TRUTH" SHOOT

Robert Redford has arrived in Sidney Australia to start production on the Rathergate biopic, "Truth," which is scheduled for an eight-week shoot over the Australian Spring season. The 77 year-old Academy Award winner, who is best known for his roles including 1973's "The Sting," 1974's "The Great Gatsby," and the 1985 film "Out of Africa," will begin filming his new movie, starring with Cate Blanchett.

  



In "Truth," Redford plays veteran CBS newsman Dan Rather while Blanchett plays Mary Mapes, his producer. The film centers on the firestorm that erupted in September 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received preferential treatment while serving in the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War.  Controversy ensued over the validity of the alleged evidence.

  



The story was later proven to be false, resulting in Rather's resignation and Mapes being fired from the CBS news organization. With shooting of this political whodunit now under way, the film will be released in early 2015.

"TALIBAN SHUFFLE" TO STAR

TINA FEY AND MARGO ROBBIE

Tina Fey is starring and producing Paramount's

adaptation of journalist Kim Barker's wartime memoir, "Taliban Shuffle; Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan."

  

 
 
Co-starring Margo Robbie, the film covers the book's recount of Kim Barker's arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan and dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war correspondent
culture.

Robbie will play a blonde, gorgeous and hard core on-air news anchor who befriends Barker (Fey) in Afghanistan.
   


Robbie's character is described as very competitive and willing to do anything, including putting herself and others in danger to launch her reporting career. The 

film commences shooting in early 2015.



 

  

Screen Shot
HEADS UP! THE WORLD'S MOST ADVANCED HELMET IS ABOUT TO CHANGE YOUR RIDE 

What's so special about the SKully AR-1 helmet? Many things. But chiefly, it has a rear-view camera mounted on the back that beams 180-degree live footage of what's behind the rider to a heads-up display on the visor at the front.

 



Sensors and microprocessors in the helmet also allow the wearer to enjoy GPS navigation as well as voice control and smartphone pairing to allow taking calls, selecting and listening to music without the need to stop. The 1Skg Skully also supports helmet-to-helmet communications.

  



The whole system runs on two batteries; one for the visor and a helmet battery for the rest of the system.  

  

It might have taken a while to kick into gear, but new helmet technology is clearly streaking ahead into the future. And we thought Captain America was cool!

TO WEIGH OR NOT TO WEIGH: THOSE INCREDIBLY SHRINKING STARS

With the holiday season just around the corner, thoughts of sugarplums and maintaining our caloric intake naturally sneaks into consciousness.

 

But in the film world, the ability to gain or lose pounds is sometimes the deciding factor in being cast in starring roles. Here's a look at a few film headliners who've dramatically lost or gained significant amounts to transform themselves in the name of art.

Russell Crowe gained 63 pounds for his role in the 2008 film "Body of Lies." He famously noted his weight is in "constant yo-yo mode."
 
Tom Hanks had to lose 50 pounds to play the lead role in the 2000 "Castaway," The film was shot in reverse, when Hanks was at his thinnest and he gradually gained as production neared the start of the story.
 

  

Anne Hathaway who nabbed a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as tuberculosis-afflicted Fantine in "Les Miserables, famously lost 25 pounds (10 before shooting, 15 during) in order to appear near death.


Rene Zellweger, the usually petite actress, packed on between 20 and 30 pounds to play the lead in the Bridget Jones films. "It's really just caloric math," she explains.

 

Matthew McConaughey survived on just diet cola, egg whites and a piece of chicken a day to play AIDS patient Ron Woodroof in the 2013 "Dallas Buyers Club." The normally beefy actor shed 21 pounds.

 

Along with makeup and wardrobe, calories or lack of same are all part of the great lengths megastars go to fit into character.
