Jeremy Renner is in talks to lead Albert Hughes' revenge thriller Motor City. According to Twitch, Renner may step in to replace Jake Gyllenhaal, who looked to be set to replace Dominic Cooper. Cooper and Gyllenhaal had to drop out after they had scheduling conflicts.
Renner would play “a small time hood who is framed and sent to prison, only to exact revenge years later on a kingpin-type (Gary Oldman) to get back the woman (Amber Heard) he loves.”
Earlier, we reported that Renner was in talks to star in Ridley Scott's The Counselor, based on a script by Cormac McCarthy. That is slated to being filming in May, which would make Renner unavailable and leave Hughes without a lead.
Since Renner is great at these types of roles, I would love to see him star in either. Which film would you rather see him star in?
