Jeremy Renner had an interesting 2012. He featured in two major franchise movies -- "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy" -- yet didn't seem to get much of a bump from either. And while "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" opened at number one last weekend, it's not a movie anyone involved is going to be proudly touting. However, 2013 may finally see him live up to that pair of Oscar nominations. He has a role in James Gray's period drama "Lowlife," and he's getting ready to shoot David O. Russell's Abscam project alongside Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams, and now he's lined up another project that is also very promising. The actor has signed to star in "Kill The Messenger," a long developing movie penned by Peter Landesman ("Parkland") and set to be directed by Michael Cuesta ("Homeland," "Dexter"). And it certainly seems right up the alley of the helmer. »
