The Real Reason Jeremy Renner Wasn’t In ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’

If you watched Mission: Impossible – Fallout this summer, you may have been surprised when you didn’t see Jeremy Renner appear in the film. Was he fired? Has he walked away from the franchise? We’ll give you the full details about his absence; it’s a truly complicated situation.

Remembering His Character

Jeremy Renner played William Brandt in 2011’s Ghost Protocol and 2015’s Rogue Nation in the Mission: Impossible franchise. The character, an Internal Monetary Fund agent, was so memorable that he quickly became a fan favorite. Renner was rumored to eventually take over the franchise once Tom Cruise would retire, but that didn’t happen.

What The Rumors Say

When it was announced Renner wouldn’t be returning to the Mission: Impossible franchise for this year’s Fallout film, fans began speculating about the reason. It was rumored the actor wasn’t returning because of his planned role in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War. However, his character, Hawkeye, was nowhere to be seen in the film. So, what happened?

A Change In Plans

Renner committed to Avengers: Infinity War, but directors Anthony and Joe Russo ultimately decided to scratch Renner from the project. They have since made plans for Hawkeye to appear in the next Avengers film, due to be released in 2019. At that point, it was too late for Renner to sign on to Mission: Impossible – Fallout. So, he missed out on two 2018 blockbuster hits. But, is that the real reason?

Tired Of The Frustrating Schedule

While Renner was filming Mission: Impossible –-Rogue Nation, he grew frustrated with the long production schedule. The movie was filmed in London, but the script kept changing on a regular basis, prolonging the production. Renner frequently had to leave his family, which some sources say could have contributed to his divorce from actress Sonni Pacheco. But that doesn’t mean Renner wasn’t asked to be a part of Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Thanks, But No Thanks

Renner was asked to be included in the recent Mission: Impossible – Fallout. When director Christopher McQuarrie pitched an idea to Renner, about starting the film with Brandt’s character sacrificing himself to save the team (providing some much-needed closure to his character), Renner rejected the idea. He said, “Thanks, but no thanks.” Will Renner ever return to the Mission: Impossible films? Only time will tell.
