Jeremy Renner explains why he left the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise and says he’s open to returning

Jeremy Renner made a great addition to the Mission Impossible franchise when he was introduced as William Brandt in Ghost Protocol and I came back once again for Rogue nation.

Renner was supposed to stay and be a main character in the franchise, but he ultimately ended up exiting the franchise, and the reason he left is noble.

While talking to Collider about Mayor of Kingtown season 3, Renner explained that he left the franchise so he could be closer to his daughter.

Renner said, “Yeah. I had to leave him. I should have done more with them. I love those guys. I love Tom [Cruise] much. We had a lot of fun and I really love that character. He requires a lot of time away. It’s all in London. I had to become a dad. Then it just wouldn’t have worked.”

Even though the actor has been away from the franchise for some time, he is open to returning now that his daughter is older.

When asked if he would return, Renner said, “Maybe now that my daughter is older it could happen. I would always jump into Mission: Impossible any time and go back to Brandt. It’s great.”

Brandt was initially tasked by the IMF to protect Ethan Hunt and his wife Julia in Croatia. After his team failed to do so and Julia was supposedly killed, Brandt asked to be removed from field duty because he didn’t want to face a life-or-death situation again.

Brandt then became chief analyst for the IMF secretary. He became a field agent again after a new mission with Ethan Hunt and his team.
