Breaking: The movie packages are coming together on the eve of next week’s Berlin Film Market. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters star Jeremy Renner has been set to star in Kill The Messenger, a thriller that Michael Cuesta will direct that is based on the tragic tale of a journalist who committed suicide after being smeared by the CIA. The script was written by Peter Landesman. Cuesta seems perfect for this; he’s an exec producer and has directed numerous episodes of Homeland abd has been integral in establishing the visual look of that show. He also helmed the pilots for Dexter and Elementary. Scott Stuber, who set up this project eight years as producer at Universal, will be joined by Renner and Don Handfield and it will be a co-production between Stuber’s Bluegrass and Renner’s The Combine. Naomi Despres is also producing. The film begins production in the summer. »
