Jeremy Renner Lines Up Three Projects

“The Hurt Locker” star Jeremy Renner has already set his next two projects and is heavily considering a top secret third one.

Reuters reports that first off the block is “Raven”, an indie period thinner co-starring Ewan McGregor which he’ll begin work on shortly.

The story is a fictional spin on acclaimed author Edgar Allan Poe’s final five days when he joins a hunt for a serial killer who has been inspired by his macabre stories.

After that he’s in talks to star in Peter Berg’s film adaptation of the classic board game “Battleship” for Universal Pictures. That film goes into production this Summer for a May 2012 release.

He’s also had around half a dozen meetings for another project but declined to reveal what that would be, other than it will also be shooting over the Summer and he may have to choose between it and “Battleship”.
