Jeremy Renner says he is coming back for Mission: Impossible 5

Jun. 6, 2014by: Alex Maidy

When MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - GHOST PROTOCOL hit theaters in 2011, Tom Cruise was partnered with then up and coming star Jeremy Renner as part of his IMF team. After the success of that film, the inevitable sequel was announced. While we know MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 is slated to hit screens next year under the direction of Christopher McQuarrie, no stars have been announced outside of Cruise himself.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, Renner was asked about his upcoming guest appearance on the sitcom LOUIE and if he plans any other small screen gigs in the future. Maybe even a turn on the second season of TRUE DETECTIVE.

It's kind of unlikely. In fact, I'm kind of strapped time-wise doing AVENGERS 2, and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 is rearing its head, and then they want to do another BOURNE movie. It's unlikely I can find the time right now. And that's all right. It's just really high-class problems — pretty awesome to have. Even if I really wanted to do it, which I don't, I couldn't.

While that isn't a formal announcement, I doubt Renner would mention MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5 if he wasn't going to appear in it in some capacity. While his character could simply be killed off in the opening sequence, something the franchise has done in the past, I would think with the amount of development they put into his role in GHOST PROTOCOL he would be a more substantial character than a mere cameo.

Renner now has roles in three major franchises. I agree, pretty awesome problems to have. Hopefully we get to see all three of these movies over the course of the next year.

His character, Brandt, should've been callled; Bland.
Just kidding he was a pretty cool addition, even though it was awkwardly apparent that the character was shoe-horned in as Hunt's replacement as it was initially planned but luckily panned (heh). I hope the M:I franchise goes on for a long time with Cruise in the lead. Hunt gradually gettting "too old for this shit' sounds way better than him being replaced eventually.

Good. I like Cruise, but I've see the same thing from him so often that I need something else to interest me. In the last film there was an indication that Renner and Pegg could develop into a lovely comic duo and I hope that is the way they take it - let Cruise do his alpha male thing.

His scenes were some of the best in Ghost Protocol.

So this means maybe Mission: Impossible will start having a more regular cast, instead of just being the Tom Cruise franchise with a sprinkling of Ving Rhames (and now Simon Pegg). Personally, I'm for it. If Tom Cruise isn't the only reason to come back, he could ride this franchise long after he's not physically as up to it, with someone like Renner or Paula Patton taking over the action duties.

Good to see him see him say it's high class problems. Sounds more level headed now than when he was bitching and moaning about his Avengers screentime.

It wasn't about screentime, but about signing to play Hawkeye and playing, somehow, somebody else, for most of the movie...
I can understand that.

Ditto Cathelotte. Renner never complained about screen time, he only said he was frustrated with brainwashed Hawkeye. I don't blame him. Between crap pay, almost no screentime, and a totally robotic character, Renner really did earn himself a reasonable temper tantrum, but instead he promoted the movie like crazy, was the only avenger to fly all the way to China for the premiere, made fun of himself on SNL, and showed up at all his costars premieres that he wasn't even written into. If you read

If you read his quote that has been so grossly taken out of context, he hasn't even asked for more screen time in the next one, just that he can play the character he signed on to play. None of that feels like a bad attitude to me, personally.

Glad to see his character coming back. He was one of the best parts about Ghost Protocol and I hope along with Renner they bring back Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames too.

But glad to see Renner belonging to so many great franchises and kicking ass.

I second we need Ving Rhames back for the next one.

And for more than a cameo, this time !
And bring back some of the others, from previous MI films...

I liked Renner's character in MI:4.

Hell everyone's character had some sort of story arc. Love Renner as an actor, Kill The Messenger looks pretty sick.
