Opening in theaters next month, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL is the fourth installment in the popular franchise based on the ’70s TV series of the same name. This time around, Ethan Hunt and his IMF team are falsely accused of a Kremlin bombing and are forced to clear their names before another attack. Directed by BRAD BIRD, the cast includes TOM CRUISE, SIMON PEGG, PAULA PATTON, VING RHAYMES, TOM WILKINSON and JEREMY RENNER.
This marks the beginning of RENNER’S future in franchise features. Currently in post-production is THE AVENGERS (in which he plays Hawkeye) and, now filming is THE BOURNE LEGACY (in which he plays Aaron Cross). Add to that his role in the upcoming HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS and RENNER might be the hardest working action star in the biz. Getting in shape for all these roles was no small task and RENNER tells us that a lot of the credit goes to co-star TOM CRUISE. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
