Jeremy Renner, Oscar nominated star of The Hurt Locker, has been a busy boy on the awards circuit. But now, after gaining some well-deserved attention for his role in Kathryn Bigelow's intense war film, Renner's been raking in offers non-stop.
First up is The Raven, from Ninja Assassin's director James McTeigue, which is an attempt to mash up Edgar Allen Poe's life (that'll be fiction, then) with a murder-mystery. That has Ewan McGregor lined up for it too.
The second is Peter Berg's Battleship, which would be a fairly high profile blockbuster turn. The sci-fi action flick, based of course on the board game, will no doubt involve ships battling it out against aliens in some kind of battle of ships. That'll be turning up in 2012.
But the most intriguing offering is a third, unknown project, which Renner isn't revealing. All we know is he's had 5 meetings about it, and that it will most likely clash with Battleship. No word on what it is yet. But I'm still hoping it might be Captain America...
