First Images From True-Life Dramatic Thriller 'Kill The Messenger' Starring Jeremy Renner

4 November 2013 8:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As "The Fifth Estate" sadly proved last month, journalism movies aren't the easiest sell at the multiplex, even when involving a current hot button issue and headline-grabbing figure at the center of the drama. But a good story can't be ignored and Jeremy Renner and director Michael Cuesta ("Homeland," "Dexter" and "Twelve And Holding" also featuring Renner) have latched onto one in "Kill The Messenger." And even though the movie isn't due until sometime in 2014, the pair are getting out in front and starting to talk about the movie. Penned by Peter Landesman ("Parkland"), based on the books "Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion" by Gary Webb and Nick Schou’s "Kill the Messenger: How the CIA’s Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb" and featuring an all star-cast—Rosemarie DeWittAndy Garcia, Lucas Hedges, Tim Blake Nelson, Robert Patrick, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, »

Michael K. Williams Joins 'Kill The Messenger' As "Freeway" Rick Ross, Watch Vintage News Segment About The True Story

8 July 2013 3:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The CIA has done some dirty deeds, but their links to pushing drugs within the United States itself is still something many don't quite believe, but perhaps after "Kill The Messenger," that might all change. With the Jeremy Renner starring film ramping up to go in front of cameras, the case is starting to get rounded out and two more solid names are on board. "The Wire" and "Boardwalk Empire" star Michael K. Williams and the seemingly always busy Rosemarie DeWitt are the latest aboard the film. Penned by Peter Landesman ("Parkland"), set to be directed by Michael Cuesta ("Homeland," "Dexter," "Twelve And Holding"), and based on the books "Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion" by Gary Webb and Nick Schou’s "Kill the Messenger: How the CIA’s Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb," the film will tell the true story of reporter »

Creator Anthony Cipriano (Twelve and Holding) imagines what Norman Bates’ life was like before Psycho in the TV show Bates Motel.

A&E’s horror series serves as a prequel to Hitchcock’s 1960 thriller. Freddie Highmore (The Art of Getting By) plays young Norman, who’s moved to White Pine Bay, Oregon, by his mother, Norma Louise Bates (Vera Farmiga, Safe House) six months after his father dies. They take over a small rundown motel that had fallen into foreclosure.

Mother and son are drawn together while things go from bad to worse. The former owner (W. Earl Brown, The Lone Ranger) of the motel threatens them, Norman’s older half-brother (Max Thierott, My Soul to Take) comes into town and causes trouble, and something bad is going on with Deputy Sheriff Shelby (Mike Vogel, TV’s »

Well, that didn't take long. Just a few short days after Jeremy Renner signed up for the very promising "Kill the Messenger," the project has now landed a great home. Focus Features has snapped up the worldwide rights and will distribute the movie in the United States, in what should be a compelling and potentially controversial drama. Penned by Peter Landesman ("Parkland"), set to be directed by Michael Cuesta ("Homeland," "Dexter" and who also helmed "Twelve And Holding" featuring Renner), and based on the books "Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion" by Gary Webb and Nick Schou’s "Kill the Messenger: How the CIA’s Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb," the film will tell the true story of the reporter who detailed the CIA's connection to the crack cocaine trade, only to be smeared as a result, losing his job, falling into depression, and. »
