Paz Vega is set to join Jeremy Renner in the upcoming Kill the Messenger, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb, a San Jose Mercury News reporter who allegedly committed suicide after being the target of a smear campaign when he linked the CIA to a scheme to arm Contra rebels in Nicaragua and import cocaine into California.
Peter Landesman wrote the screenplay, based on the two books the studio optioned: "Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion," by Webb, and Nick Schou's "Kill the Messenger: How the CIA's Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb."
Vega's credits include Sex and Lucia and Cat Run. She can be seen in the upcoming Grace of Monaco.
