“Hurt Locker” star joins “Mission: Impossible” team

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Jeremy Renner PicEthan Hunt has just picked up a new Mission: Impossible team member — and he’s got a specialty in bombs.

Jeremy Renner, who starred in “The Hurt Locker,” has been cast opposite Tom Cruise in the next installment of “Mission: Impossible” franchise, which is aiming for a December 16, 2011 release date. Brad Bird is directing the Paramount project, with shooting expected to begin in the fall.

Renner has been on a tear since his Oscar nomination as a bomb-disposal tech in “Hurt Locker” earlier this year. Marvel Studios recently cast him as Hawkeye in its 2012 release, “The Avengers,” which is supposed to start shooting in February, and Paul Thomas Anderson wants him for his next film, “The Master.”

But the “M:I-4″ development is a curious one. As Paramount, Cruise and producer J.J. Abrams, who directed and co-wrote the previous installment, had discussed a new dynamic for the fourth film, the plan was for younger actors to join the M:I team as a hedge if they decided to reboot the series at some point with Cruise’s character absent or less central.

Renner is about to turn 40, which makes him just eight years younger than Cruise. If Renner has been cast as a potential successor, that undercuts the idea of carrying on the franchise as a more youthful enterprise.

Deadline New York first reported the Renner casting.

Renner next stars in Ben Affleck’s crime drama “The Town,” which Warner Bros. opens in three weeks.

Valkyrie movie posters

Check out the latest “Valkyrie” movie trailer.

You can purchase the “Valkyrie” movie posters at All Movie Replicas.

In a country in the grips of evil, in a police state where every move is being watched, in a world where justice and honor have been subverted, a group of men hidden inside the highest reaches of power decide to take action. Tom Cruise stars in the suspense film, Valkyrie, based on the true story of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (Cruise) and the daring and ingenious plot to eliminate one of the most evil tyrants the world has ever known. Director Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men, Superman Returns) re-teams with Academy Award®-winning Usual Suspects screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie to bring to life the story of the men who led the operation to assassinate Hitler. The film also stars an acclaimed cast including Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Carice van Houten, Thomas Kretschmann, Eddie Izzard, Christian Berkel and Terence Stamp. A proud military man, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is a loyal officer who serves his country all the while hoping that someone will find a way to stop Hitler before Europe and Germany are destroyed. Realizing that time is running out, he decides that he must take action himself and joins the German resistance. Armed with a cunning strategy to use Hitler’s own emergency plan — known as Operation Valkyrie — these men plot to assassinate the dictator and overthrow his Nazi government from the inside. With everything in place, with the future of the world, the fate of millions and the lives of his wife and children hanging in the balance, von Stauffenberg is thrust from being one of many who oppose Hitler to the one who must kill Hitler himself.
