Jeremy Renner cracks a conspiracy wide open in the first trailer for the fall thriller Kill the Messenger.
The film is based on the true story of how the U.S. government allowed tons and tons of cocaine to come into this country in exchange for getting a leg up on the growing communist threat in Central America. You might recall it was called Iran-Contra.
Renner is Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb who stumbles on the story of a lifetime which leads him from his home in San Jose to Nicaragua and all the way to the heart of the U.S. government, Washington, D.C.
The Avengers star leads an all-star 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.
Look for Kill the Messenger on October 10.
And be sure to witness Renner in action as Hawkeye when you watch The Avengers online.
