Kill the Messenger, 2014.
Directed by Michael Cuesta.
Starring Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Paz Vega, Michael Sheen, Robert Patrick, Tim Blake Nelson, Ray Liotta, Michael K. Williams, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Rosemarie DeWitt and Oliver Platt.
A reporter becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign that drives him to the point of suicide after he exposes the CIA’s role in arming Contra rebels in Nicaragua and importing cocaine into California. Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb.
There’s so much deep and fascinating detail to cover in Kill the Messenger, it’s a wonder the film didn’t get swallowed up by the multiple strands which lay between conspiracy thriller, journalistic cautionary tale and biopic. It’s a credit to director Michael Cuesta and lead star Jeremy Renner that their film ends up being one of the better ‘based on a true story’ films of the last year. »

First of all, Spy starring Melissa McCarthy (watch two trailers right here) has been pushed just a couple weeks to June 5th later in the summer. And moving up a couple months to take its vacated May 22nd release date will be Gil Kenan's new take on Poltergeist from MGM with Rosemarie DeWitt and Sam Rockwell (check out the two teaser trailers here). Finally, due to the shift in Spy, the adaptation of Paper Towns (based on the book by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green) has been pushed to July 24th. It'll be a busy summer! »

It only takes one small-town journalist to make a difference in Kill the Messenger, a true-life conspiracy thriller in the vein of All the President's Men, with The Hurt Locker and The Avengers' Jeremy Renner in buzzing electric form as the titular scribe. His defining moment is a 1996 series of articles uncovering the CIA's involvement in aiming to depose the Nicaraguan government, an effort funded by sales of crack cocaine – mainly in South Central, Los Angeles.
Apart from the dodgy foreign politics, issues of race and class are squarely in the frame as government spooks deem the lives of some of their own citizens expendable when weighed against the cost of arming the Nicaraguan Contra movement (who supply and distribute the coke in the Us, »
Director: Michael Cuesta
Run Time: 112 minutes
Synopsis: A reporter becomes the victim of a smear campaign after exposing a link between CIA backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua, Nicaraguan drug trafficking and the outbreak of crack cocaine in America’s inner cities.
Inspired by the life of Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) and his ‘Dark Alliance’ exposé on the explosion of crack cocaine in the United States (which inevitably ruined his career), the film draws attention to the power and reach of fourth and fifth estate journalism and to the subjective objectivism of its gatekeepers.

Few filmmakers have been as pivotal to the mumblecore movement as Joe Swanberg, whose micro-budgeted, improv-heavy dramas have brought him widespread acclaim and considerable success over the past decade. In 2013, he had the biggest hit of his career with Drinking Buddies and followed it up with another high-profile project, titled Happy Christmas, which sent his profile soaring even higher. Now, Swanberg is continuing his progression toward mainstream cinema by taking on his first studio film.
Romantic comedy Work Wife, which Swanberg will direct for New Line but (in an unusual move for him) not script, centers on two thirtysomething lawyers who decide to try their luck at dating co-workers. Screenwriters Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins previously created the beloved yet short-lived ABC comedy Trophy Wife and also have two scripts in development – Lunch Lady at Universal and Booksmart at 20th Century Fox.
Swanberg has made more than 17 films since 2005’s Kissing on the Mouth, »
