Jeremy Renner to ‘take over’ ‘Mission Impossible’

Will the Hurt Locker‘s Jeremy Renner become the new Ethan Hunt?

The actor, who will star in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol”, might take over, replacing lead man Tom Cruise.

“It’s a franchise to potentially take over,” Renner recently told MTV News. “I can’t predict the future and what they want, but that’s certainly the idea.”

The 39-year old Oscar-nominated actor wouldn’t go into details, only commenting, “It’s Tom’s baby. He’s the engine behind the thing. What happens after that, we’ll see.”
