Hawkeye Joins Cruise For MI:4

on Friday, August 27, 2010

Not only is Jeremy Renner playing Hawkeye in "The Avengers" but he's also joining the highly anticipated spy sequel, "Mission Impossible: IV". Renner officially signed on for the film at Paramount earlier this week.
Renner will star alongside Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames for the sequel. Other castings for roles in the film have been released as well. Anthony Mackie "The Hurt Locker, Kevin Zegers "Air Bud" and Christopher Egan "Letters To Juliet" are all in the running for a role or roles in the film.
I really have a funny feeling that Paramount are plannig to cast these young stars and more to carry on the franchise into a new generation of audience, once Cruise decides to leave, which probably won't be too long. For the fifth film (if one is made), Cruise will probably cameo in it, and leave it to a young crew to take over the reigns.
