New Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Preview Clip Forces Jeremy Renner to Jump
Posted 11.18.11 by Ryan
The marketing campaign for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has so far focused on Tom Cruise's stunt work on the Burj Khalifa tower, the world's tallest building, but what about Jeremy Renner's stunts?
In the fourth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, Cruise's Ethan Hunt and Renner's Brandt find themselves disavowed and blamed for a terrorist attack on the Kremlin, so they, along with fellow Impossible Mission Force agents Simon Pegg and Paula Patton, go rogue in an attempt to clear their names. One of their tasks involves Cruise running along the outside of the Burj Khalifa, while the latest preview clip shows that Renner, not Cruise, is now the agent that has to fly through air vents.
Ghost Protocol is the live-action directorial debut of Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and was produced by Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams, who helped create the story. Josh Holloway (Lost), Vladimir Mashkov (Behind Enemy Lines), Michael Nyqvist (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and Anil Kapoor (Slumdog Millionaire) co-star. Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script.
