Jeremy Renner wants to drive race cars in Slingshot
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I’ve made my distrust and lack of faith in Jeremy Renner known through many news posts, but once again we have another report of Renner taking on a leading man role. This time, Renner wants to star in and produce the film SLINGSHOT. I’m not the biggest fan of racing, but this story actually sounds pretty decent and focuses on the true story of Bill Caswell. Caswell was a die-hard racing fan that bought a beat up car for $500 off Craigslist and then managed to beat out $400k+ race cars at the World Championships. If you have a few minutes, I highly recommend you check out his entire story by clicking the link: How a $500 Craigslist Car Beat $400k Rally Racer.
As for Renner, he would be producing the story under his newly formed production company Combine, making it the second film he’s working on, along with the Steve McQueen biopic. For now, he’ll star shooting THE BOURNE LEGACY later this year.
