Jeremy Renner, the star of last year’s Oscar triumphalist, “The Hurt Locker” may have landed another major role. He was cast in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” with the intention of possibly taking over for Tom Cruise.
“It’s a franchise to potentially take over,” Renner told MTV News. “I can’t predict the future and what they want, but that’s certainly the idea.” However Renner didn’t explain, if he will may get the leading part in the upcoming “Ghost Protocol,” or the following movie of the franchise.
“I can’t really go into the details of the script, because that’s still evolving,” he said. “It’s Tom’s baby. He’s the engine behind the thing. What happens after that, we’ll see.”
Well, one thing’s for sure – Tom Cruise is not getting any younger, and Renner could be the right man to give the serial a fresh face.
