Jeremy Renner explains why he left Mission: Impossible

The interpreter of Agent William Brandt also says he is ready to return to the Tom Cruise saga. Spoiler alert!

Barely recovered from an accident that almost cost him his life, Jeremy Renner is already ready to get back on track. While season 3 of Mayor of Kingstown is about to be broadcast in the United States on Paramount +, the interpreter of Hawkeye returns to another of the roles that made his career: that of agent William Brandt in the saga Impossible mission.

Shortly after the box Minesweepers (2009), Jeremy Renner made his debut alongside Tom Cruise In Ghost Protocolthe fourth installment in the action franchise, released in 2011. In 2015, he reprized his role for Rogue Nationepisode in which his character retires.

A twist that surprised many, because it was said that Jeremy Renner was at the top of the candidates considered to take over from Tom Cruise, who was thinking of hanging up his secret agent costume. A consideration since swept away by not four, but five more films, the sixty-one year old actor being in the middle of filming the eighth Impossible mission.

At the time, many blamed Jeremy Renner's departure on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which Jeremy Renner established himself as one of the original six Avengers. Since 2011, the American actor appeared in the first part of Thor, Avengers, The Winter Soldier And Age of Ultron.

However, Renner gives another explanation. Asked about this by the American media Colliderthe actor explained that his adventure Impossible mission had to end for family reasons. Indeed, in 2013, between the release of Ghost Protocol and the one at Rogue Nationhis companion at the time, Sonni Pachecogives birth to their daughter, Ava Berlin.

“I had to let godeclares the actor. I was supposed to make more films with them. I love them. I really like Tom. We had a lot of fun and I really like this character. But it took a lot of time, and far away. Everything took place in London. I had to fulfill my duties as a father. It didn’t work at the time.”

More than ten years later, the actor specifies Collider what he would say if we asked him to come back:

“Maybe now that my daughter is older I could come back. I would always jump at the chance to do a Impossible mission, and to return to the character of Brandt. It’s a great experience.”

Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise will they find a little space in the already well-stocked cast of big names in the next installment of MID for Jeremy Renner? Or will we have to wait for a ninth film to see William Brandt return?

While waiting to learn more, it was recently announced that Jeremy Renner would be in the casting ofAt Knives Out 3with Daniel Craigof course, but also Glenn Close, Kerry Washington, Andrew Scott, Josh O'Connor (star of The Crown and Challengers) and Cailee Spaeny.

What if Knives Out 3 was a musical?
