Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.
Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

Jeremy Renner.s a busy dude. When he isn.t apprehending Ultron as a member of Team Avengers, he.s acting away in Oscar-pedigreed dramas like American Hustle or the upcoming Kill the Messenger. He also tried to put the Bourne franchise on his back once Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass walked away. Now that they are coming back (allegedly), where does that leave Renner and his #chems? In a recent interview with HuffPo, Jeremy Renner made it clear that, in his mind, the return of Matt Damon.s Jason Bourne doesn.t spell the end for his secret agent, Aaron Cross. In fact, Renner said: I think it really opens up the world and it keeps Bourne.s character active. I think Cross. character is already going to continue to be active. I think it will take creatives to bring them together, which is what I think is ultimately »
A few weeks ago we learned that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are reuniting for another Bourne movie; and when the confetti cleared many wondered what would come of the other Bourne franchise starring Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross. Now Renner has opened up on what he thinks about Damon’s return and what might happen with the franchise. It’s important to note that the sequel to The Bourne Legacy was never shelved, just postponed, as Damon and Greengrass’s next »

It appears as though Jeremy Renner’s schedule has indeed derailed production of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. Last we reported of the sequel brought news that the film’s director, Tommy Wirkola, had summited a script to Paramount Pictures and was awaiting the go-ahead from the studio to begin filming.
Now though, Wirkola has admitted to Fangoria that he has departed the project as director.
“I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it’s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won’t be directing it.”
While this is disappointing news for fans of the off-beat original, »

Jeremy Renner has been making the press rounds recently, and he can't avoid any questions regarding Avengers: Age of Ultron in which Hawkeye will have a much bigger role, and Captain America 3, which he might also be a part of.
In an interview with Starpulse, this is what the actor said about Age of Ultron and Hawkeye,
"It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit, We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there's a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We've got some great new goodies, and some good baddies."
The actor was then asked about Guardians of the Galaxy, which he loved, and whether or not he »

It turns out Jeremy Renner's uber-busy schedule may not be the biggest obstacle Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 has to face. The sequel to the R-rated fairy tale just lost its director. Fangoria breaks our hearts by reporting Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters helmer Tommy Wirkola has walked away from the sequel. He explains: "I.ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it.s just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won.t be directing it." Excuse me. I need a moment to let my hopes for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 shatter completely. On the surface, this might »
Jeremy Renner may have jumped into more movie franchises than he can handle. As it stands, the Oscar nominated actor barely has time to fit in passion projects like next month’s Kill The Messenger in between his blockbuster obligations. Coming off shooting The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor is currently working away on Mission: Impossible 5 – a series he signed a three-picture deal for after Tom Cruise personally convinced him to do so.
And next up, sequels are in early development for The Bourne Legacy where he may finally team up with Matt Damon, and Hansel & Gretel where the star will return alongside Gemma Arterton (once it finds a new director). It was this over-the-top schedule ...

Tommy Wirkola will no longer direct Hansel & Gretel 2.
The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters writer and director has confirmed that despite penning the script, he will not direct the sequel.
"I've just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2," Wirkola told Fangoria. "I have been lately attached to a few more things. It's just a matter of time and priorities.
"I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won't be directing it."
The pair are yet to be confirmed for the sequel. »
While promoting his "Kill the Messenger" movie, Jeremy Renner spoke about his Marvel contract, revealing that the studio has discussed a potential "Hawkeye" spin-off movie. "I think most actors will sign on to do, like... 'Captain America' 1-3 and then 'The Avengers' 1-3, and then you're done," he explained. "For me, I signed on to 'The Avengers' 1-3 and then 'Hawkeye,' in case they want to do a 'Hawkeye' spin-off." When the topic switched to "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and how the film gave equal time to both Captain America (Chris Evans) And Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Renner said: "Right. I think that's why they want a Hawkeye/Widow movie so bad." It's clear by his comments that Marvel has no interest in giving Renner his own "Hawkeye" film, but there's apparently lots of interest in having Hawkeye team up with Black Widow for their own spin-off. »
"Oh, that's a rumor all right. I don't know what's going to happen. I know it's going to start shooting in March. I haven't had any official conversations about doing it or not."
He then spoke about the already wrapped "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and the regularly scheduled in additional filming which has yet to come:
"We have to do some pick-up shots here and there, but for the most part [we're done]. Hulk has a more prominent role, and I have a more prominent role. There are a lot more scenes of the entire Avengers gang together - both in and out of the cape, so to speak. It's making me become a total fanboy. It's pretty fun to be a part of."

Jeremy Renner set the internet gossip machine off the other week, when he dropped into conversation that the character of Hawkeye was potentially making an appearance in Captain America 3. Renner, who is returning to play the role in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron, has given a new interview to the Daily Beast that throws just a little bit of doubt on it, as he confirms at the moment that it's just a rumour.
"I don't know what's going to happen. I know it's going to start shooting in March", he said of Captain America 3. "I haven't had any official conversations about doing it or not". Note that doesn't rule out unofficial conversations, of course. So maybe he's not throwing too much doubt.
Anyway, Renner also turned his attention to The Avengers 2, »
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 has a script, but not a director, as Tommy Wirkola drops out of helming the sequel...
A surprise hit when it was finally released in 2013, Tommy Wirkola's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, grossed $226m worldwide off a budget less than a quarter of that. Unsurprisingly, Paramount Pictures wanted a sequel.
Writer-director Tommy Wirkola had been set to return for the new film too, and has written the screenplay for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. However, he's also dropped out of directing it.
Chatting to Fangoria, Wirkola said that "I have been lately attached to a few more things, it's just a matter of time and priorities". Whilst he's remaining involved in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, he added that "I want to do something a bit different now and not just do sequels".

Wirkola's next film is Dead Snow 2, which hits theaters Oct. 10. "I’ve just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel 2," Wirkola said. "I have been lately attached to a few more things.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola states in a new interview with Fangoria that he is no longer directing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, just one week after having revealed that the script is finished.
Here's what the filmmaker had to say, stating that he still hopes to be involved in the project, just not as a director.
"I've just decided to not direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. I have been lately attached to a few more things, it's just a matter of time and priorities. I did Dead Snow 1, then Hansel & Gretel 1, and then Dead Snow 2. I want to do something a little bit different now and not just do sequels. I did write the script and I hope to be involved in it. But yeah, I won't be directing it."
Last week, the filmmaker turned his script in to Paramount Pictures, which was received positively by the studio. »

Even though he has completed the script to the film, Tommy Wirkola (who also helmed the Dead Snow films) has said that he's decided against returning to direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. I'm not sure if this really qualifies as a blow against the film since Wirkola is still attached to produce the thing and oversee his script, and if Paramount is able to find some young hotshot director to make this their playground then it could actually be a cool scenario. I identify with Wirkola's reasoning here, as it seems he doesn't want to be caught in an endless cycle of making sequels to his own films. The biggest hurdle facing the project remains the potential unavailability of star Jeremy Renner. Hit the jump for more on Tommy Wirkola not returning to direct Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2.

As Jeremy Renner continues to make the press rounds for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, the actor cleared the air about a certain Captain America 3 rumor and teased new details about Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, despite claiming that he wasn't really interested in a Hawkeye solo movie last week, Renner does confirmed that he is signed on for one should Marvel deem it necessary. He then teases a possible Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie.
Most actors who take on a major role in any Marvel movie sign multi-picture deals that will span several years. When asked about his own Marvel contract, Jeremy Renner says the deal includes Marvel's The Avengers, next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, along with a possible Hawkeye spin-off movie:
There has been a lot of evidence pointing towards Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye being heavily featured in Joe and Anthony Russo's upcoming Captain America 3. Renner himself has hinted at the idea a couple of times in interviews, and the directors have gone public lamenting the fact that they couldn't properly squeeze him into Captain America: The Winter Soldier. But before fans start getting ahead of themselves and dreaming of the hero's possible role, they might want to slow down just a bit. Despite what internet reports have said, it looks like Hawkeye may not actually be locked in for Captain America 3 yet - and if he is, nobody has actually bothered to tell Jeremy Renner about it yet. The actor addressed the rumors during a recent interview with The Daily Beast, and while he did confirm that he has seen all of the reports, he also claims »
These days, Jeremy Renner is super busy promoting his next film Kill The Messenger, based on a true story about journalist Gary Webb. While doing an interview with The Daily Beast, the actor talked about Captain America 3 and the Avengers sequel.
