Jeremy Renner wants to Kill The Messenger

Feb 1 2013, 4:14am CST | by

Jeremy Renner is set to star in 'Kill The Messenger'.

'The Bourne Legacy' actor and his production company The Combine are lining up the rights to the film so he can play the lead in the tragic true-life drama about reporter Gary Webb.

The Pulitzer-winning journalist committed suicide in 2004 after exposing a CIA scandal led to the end of his career.

Gary wrote a series of articles in the San Jose Mercury News revealing how the CIA allowed Nicaragua's Contra rebels to smuggle cocaine into the States in the 1980s and how the money from the drug sales was then used to fund their war against the Nicaraguan government.

His three-part expose hit newsstands in 1996 and resulted in a long smear campaign which ultimately caused him to take his own life.

Jeremy is also keen to co-produce the film, which Michael Cuesta will helm and Peter Landesman has written the script for.

The project will be introduced at the Berlinale festival this month and cameras are expected to begin rolling this summer.

Jeremy can soon be see opposite Gemma Arteton in fairytale-inspired thriller 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' and will join forces with 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O'Russell on his new movie.

KILL THE MESSENGER Review

Oct 10 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Collider

I really admire investigative journalists.  They're like a detective who works for all of us where it's not about protecting one person, but looking out for society as a whole by trying to get at the truth and hold the guilty accountable for their actions.  However, too often we get bogged down in what's salacious rather than what’s honest.  Director Michael Cuesta falls into the same trap with his new film, Kill the Messenger.  Although his movie (which is based on a tr ...

KIll the Messenger Review

Oct 9 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: ign

Kill the Messenger, starring Jeremy Renner as former San Jose Mercury News reporter Gary Webb, slaps dreamers across the face with the iron glove of reality.
