Renner's candid discussion sheds light on his commitment to character development and his ongoing affection for the series and its cast, including Tom Cruise. Dive into the drama, decisions, and possible future returns of Renner to the adrenaline-fueled world of 'Mission: Impossible.'

Renner's Rebellion!

Imagine being flown overseas just to witness your beloved character's demise! Jeremy Renner was having none of it.

"I remember they tried to bring me over[seas] for a week so they could kill my character, and I was like, ‘No, you don’t get to do that. You’re not going to drag me over there and just kill my character,’ like get out of here!" Renner said.

"If you’re going to do this and you’re going to use my character, you’re going to do it right," Renner exclaimed, showcasing his fierce loyalty to IMF agent "William Brandt." His refusal to accept a lackluster exit for Brandt highlights a rare stand against Hollywood's often ruthless character arcs.

Renner's interaction with director Christopher McQuarrie over the controversial decision was nothing short of cinematic. "I yelled at [McQuarrie]," Renner admitted, though he quickly assured it was all in good humor.

It's clear Renner's passion for his role is matched only by his dedication to ensuring it's treated with the respect it deserves.

Despite stepping away from the 'Mission: Impossible' franchise after 'Rogue Nation,' Renner's heart remains with the cast and the thrilling world they inhabit together. His admiration for Tom Cruise and the team is palpable, as is his openness to reprise his role as Brandt.

"I was supposed to do more with them," Renner said of the 'Mission: Impossible' cast. "I love those guys. I love Tom so much. We had so much fun, and I love that character a lot. It requires a lot of time away. It’s all in London. I had to go be a dad. It just wasn’t gonna work out then. Maybe now that my daughter is older that could happen. I’d always jump into a ‘Mission: Impossible’ anytime and back into Brandt. It’s great."

Rumors once swirled about Renner taking over the franchise from Tom Cruise, but Renner sets the record straight. "No, it was always Tom’s show, that would be a Tom decision, if he ever wanted to change that narrative," Renner said.

"And as he’s maturing as an actor, he kinda wants to hold on, he’s doing ‘Top Gun’ again, right? He’s rebooting that, and let’s [lean] into the things in his life that he’s comfortable with now…the guy’s a beast and works harder than anyone I know," he stated, acknowledging Cruise's unparalleled dedication and hinting at no immediate plans for a franchise handover.

Renner's respect for Cruise's work ethic and leadership is evident, showcasing a camaraderie that transcends the screen.
