Renner, 39, who recently starred in The Town, was cast in the upcoming Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and he might be taking over for Tom Cruise.

“It’s a franchise to potentially take over. I can’t predict the future and what they want, but that’s certainly the idea,” Renner told MTV News.

He wouldn’t say more on whether he’ll take over in Ghost Protocol or a future Mission: Impossible film.

“I can’t really go into the details of the script, because that’s still evolving. It’s Tom’s baby. He’s the engine behind the thing. What happens after that, we’ll see,” Renner said.

Ghost Protocol is due out December 2011.

What do you fans think? Is it time for Tom Cruise to hand the torch over?

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
