Why Hollywood Will Never Give Up on the Western

29 May 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Western should have died years ago. A vestige of an era before we had 50 states, it is a genre of stories about impolitic men in the age of the politically correct, about riding horses in a car culture and about traversing unsettled land that has long since urbanized. A quintessentially American genre, the Western's commercial appeal should be limited now that other countries dominate the movie business. So why did Media Rights Capital, Scott Stuber and Seth MacFarlane — the same savvy trio that made “Ted” — make a Western? Because the genre is riding high commercially and artistically.

29 May 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for Jeremy Renner’s journalism drama “Kill the Messenger,” due for release on Oct. 10.

Story is based on investigative journalist Gary Webb’s stories alleging the CIA’s involvement in the spread of crack cocaine in Los Angeles — and the consequences Webb faces for his whistle-blowing.

“National security and crack cocaine in the same sentence — does that not seem strange to you?” Renner asks early in the trailer.

Michael Cuesta is directing from Peter Landesman’s script. Focus acquired worldwide distribution rights at Berlin last year.

Rosemarie DeWitt, Lucas Hedges, Robert Patrick, Barry Pepper, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael Kenneth Williams and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are also starring. Producers are Scott Stuber, Renner and Naomi Despres.
