USA Today have revealed these first looks at the 2014 true-life dramatic thriller ’Kill the Messenger.’ Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner stars as Gary Webb, the real-life dedicated reporter for The San Jose Mercury-News. In the 1990s, Webb uncovered the Central Intelligence Agency’s role in importing cocaine into California that was sold to raise money for the Nicaraguan Contras rebel army. Supported by his wife and children, Webb pursued the story and went public with his evidence. When targeted for a vicious smear campaign by the CIA and rival journalists, Webb found himself fighting for his reputation and his family.
Joining Jeremy Renner in the cast are Josh Close, Rosemarie DeWitt, Andy Garcia, Lucas Hedges, Tim Blake Nelson, Robert Patrick, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Michael Cuesta (“Homeland”) is directing the movie from a screenplay by Peter Landesman that was inspired by the books “Kill the Messenger,” by Nick Schou; and “Dark Alliance,” by Gary Webb.
