After revealing Kill the Messenger by Nick Schou.
In the film, Renner stars as Webb, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, who stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications.
Maybe I’m blanking, but it seems a while since we had a good conspiracy thriller as this sounds like it’s attempting to take us back to something like All the President’s Men.
The film features a massive cast that includes Rosemarie DeWitt, Ray Liotta, Tim Blake Nelson, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Paz Vega, Michael Kenneth Williams, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Andy Garcia and the film is set to hit theaters on October 10, suggesting a Toronto premiere may be in the offing.
