Can we put Jeremy Renner in more movies? With THE AVENGERS and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL coming up, you'd think that would be satisfying. But I'm still asking for more.

Renner is now attached to star in THE KING OF HEISTS. J. North Conway wrote the non-fiction novel the film is based on.

The actor will play, "George Leslie, who came to New York appearing to be a mannered gent, but secretly put together a crew and masterminded a heist of nearly $3 million in cash and securities from the Manhattan Savings Institution in 1878." Good thing he already got some training from making THE TOWN.

Will Staples will pen the adaptation. Staples recently sold his script for the sci-fi venture, MYTH. Sam Worthington is attached to star in that project with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and James Cameron producing.

Isn't He ...

or wasn't he attached to the new Bourne film(s) that were supposedly getting made too? Or did I misread something or just miss the fact that it isn't happening now?

No, he is. And at least one is being made.

It's weird... He's apparently filming Bourne and Avengers simultaneously. I guess the title character has way less to do in this incarnation of Bourne.

He must really love being military/spies ... Whatever I'll watch him in anything he does.

It's rare to find a star who is actually a very good actor and capable of also being a badass action star, but Renner is definitely one of them. I'm down!
