M:I6 may be losing Jeremy Renner

It wasn’t perhaps the most notable of stories that landed around the world last week, yet Paramount Pictures confirmed on Wednesday morning a release date for Mission: Impossible 6. The film, that Tom Cruise is set to headline once again, is due in cinemas on July 27th 2018. And most of his IMF crew is expected to return alongside him.

Yet this time, Jeremy Renner may not be included in that. The actor has a bit of schedule next year, at the timeMission: Impossible 6 is set to shoot. And he may not be able to fit the movie in.

Chatting to Collider, Renner said of the film that “I know that they’re really wanting to get it going, and I haven’t spoken to Tom yet about where it’s at. I know there might be some conflict with schedules, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen”.

He noted that “Avengers is going to eat up a lot of next year. Gladly, but I certainly hope it doesn’t ultimately get in the way of Tom and I and the gang getting back together for that, because I’d love to”.

Renner is committed to filming the pair of Avengers: Infinity War movies, and it looks like there’s a sporting chance that’s going to throw his involvement in other projects into doubt as a consequence.
