Jeremy Renner circling Peter Berg’s Battleship
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
In a bit of a cryptic story, Jeremy Renner revealed that he is in talks to star in the big screen board game adaptation BATTLESHIP for director Peter Berg. At the same time, he mentioned that he has had multiple meetings to star in another high profile project, but he wouldn’t give the name of the film. So it looks like THE HURT LOCKER has proven to be the catalyst Renner needed to become a superstar. Of course, now the question is what is he going to do with it?
Renner will be starring in the indie film RAVEN, which Ewan McGregor is looking at co-starring. We’ll probably be seeing a lot of Renner for at least the next few years. As for BATTLESHIP, I’m not so sure how that’s going to work. I’m assuming it will be a basic submarine movie, but hopefully it will have at least something to do with the board game.
