Mission: Impossible 4 just landed themselves an Oscar nominated actor!
Paramount Pictures reportedly selected Renner after struggling for months to find a co-star for Tom Cruise, and more importantly, to possibly take over as the lead of the franchise in the future.
Renner, however, was not the studio’s first choice; Chris Pine and Tom Hardy were both considered, but their schedules were too booked up.
Production on the film is expected to begin in the fall, with both Cruise and JJ Abrams producing the action thriller. The film will shoot in the U.S., Vancouver, Prague and Dubai.
We can’t wait!
