Jeremy Renner on Potential 'Mission: Impossible' Return: 'That Could Happen'
Paramount Pictures

Admitting that he loved working with Tom Cruise and other 'M: I' stars, the William Brandt depicter explains why his exit from the franchise was inevitable at the time.

AceShowbiz - Jeremy Renner is open to taking more high-stake missions. Years after leaving the "Mission: Impossible" franchise, the actor explained why his exit was inevitable, but said that he's open to returning to the franchise now.

In an interview with Collider's Christina Radish for the third season of "Mayor of Kingstown", the 53-year-old said he had no choice but to leave the franchise because of its demanding filming schedules that conflicted with his responsibilities as a father. He said, "Yeah. I had to leave that."

Having nothing but praises for his former co-stars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe actor added, "I was supposed to do more with them. I love those guys. I love [Tom Cruise] 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," the Hawkeye depicter in MCU went on explaining the reason behind his exit, noting that if the opportunity comes, he may be able to reprise his role as William Brandt in a future installment.

"Maybe now that my daughter is older that could happen," the "Avengers: Endgame" actor shared. "I'd always jump into a 'Mission: Impossible' anytime and back into Brandt. It's great."

Renner first joined the "M: I" franchise in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (2011), where he played Brandt. He reprised the role in 2015's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation". In between those two movies, he welcomed his daughter Ava, whom he shares with ex Sonni Pacheco, in March 2013.

After exiting the "M: I" franchise, Renner continued starring in tentpole movies, including "The Avengers" movies and "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters", and is currently leading crime thriller series "Mayor of Kingstown", which is released on Paramount+.

Meanwhile, "M: I" continues to expand with the upcoming eighth installment currently in production in London. Filming recently hit a roadblock after a $29 million submarine prop malfunctioned, sending the entire production schedule into disarray.
