Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined the cast of KILL THE MESSENGER opposite Jeremy Renner, Paz Vega, Rosemarie DeWitt and Barry Pepper. Story follows Gary Webb (Renner), an investigative reporter in the 1980″²s, who publishes the truth about the CIA’s secret alliance with Nicaraguan drug dealers during the Iran-Contra Affair only to be discredited by his peers. Winstead will play a character named Dawn Garcia.
Peter Landesman wrote the script that Michael Cuesta will direct. Renner, Scott Stuber, Nick Wechsler, and Don Handfield will produce.
Winstead absolutely killed it in “Smashed” and tried her best to elevate “The Thing” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” She’ll next be see in “The Spectacular Now” (for those of us who haven’t been to any of the festivals) and “A.C.O.D.”
She is repped by WME.
