Book by Weekly Managing Editor Nick Schou About Late Reporter Gary Webb Being Turned into Movie!
Well, as Nick's keeper at this infernal rag, I'm honored to announce that Kill the Messenger is now slated to become a Hollywood film--WHOA...
Deadline.com broke the story, and scheduled to direct is Michael Cuesta (executive producer of the badass Homeland), scheduled to star is Jeremy Renner (who my chica just got a boner upon me mentioning his name, so I take it he's somebody big), and the script will come from Peter Landesman, who just so happens to be directing a JFK film right now co-produced by Tom Hanks. This ain't no Kickstarter bullshit--this is the real deal.
Congrats, Nick! And think you can write a cameo into the move for me as some crazy Salvadoran FMLN activist?
