Mary Elizabeth Winstead is joining Jeremy Renner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Michael K. Williams and Paz Vega in Michael Cuesta's "Kill The Messenger." Based on a true story, the film will depict the struggle of investigative journalist Gary Webb, who suffered a smear campaign in the late '90s/early '00s after uncovering how the CIA backed the 1980s Contra rebellion in Nicaragua by allowing the smuggling and distribution of Nicaraguan crack cocaine in California. Gary Webb lost his job after exposing this scheme, fell into depression and eventually committed suicide in 2004. He will be played by Jeremy Renner while Winstead will act as the editor of the San Jose Mercury News, the newspaper where Gary Webb published his contentious articles. The release is set for 2014.
