Interview with Jeremy Renner, Michael Cuesta for "Kill the Messenger" (Tidewater News)

Based on a book of the same name, “Kill The Messenger” tells the thrilling true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb, a man who risked everything to get to the truth. In this case, the “truth” Webb uncovered was a covert CIA plot that allowed drugs to be smuggled into the United States. The profits from the sales would then be used to fund the White House-backed Nicaraguan Contras during the Reagan Administration. After all, Congress refused to fund such an endeavor. As Webb begins to uncover more and more information about the story, both his life and career come under fire. Will he stop looking for the truth in order to secure his safety and the safety of his family, or will be risk it all to make the story public?

Freedom of the press is an important, Constitutionally-protected check on government power. “Kill The Messenger” demonstrates how dangerous this job as a “watchdog” can be and the importance of the medium on a national and international scale. Many journalists worldwide have given their lives to uncover and report the truth; just look at the recent murders of reporters at the hands of terrorist groups. “Kill The Messenger” is not only a tribute to Gary Webb, but is also a way for us to remember the sacrifices of journalists everywhere.

Lauren Veneziani (DCFilmGirl.com) and I conducted a roundtable interview with the star and producer of “Kill The Mesenger,” Jeremy Renner (“The Avengers,” “The Hurt Locker”) and director Michael Cuesta (“Homeland”, “Dexter”). As we spoke, it became obvious how proud both men are of the film and its message. We talked about what it was like filming a movie in D.C., how both men first heard about Gary Webb’s story, and (on a lighter note) how Jeremy almost played the Ice Truck Killer in the first season of Dexter! Check out the interview below and make sure you go see “Kill The Messenger,” in theaters now.
