Renner Replaces Farrell On “Virtue Fall”

Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker”) is reportedly in talks to replace his “S.W.A.T.” co-star Colin Farrell in the indie drama “Virtue Fall” says The Press Association.

Scribe Sheldon Turner makes his directorial debut on the project which follows a federal agent just released from five years imprisonment who sets out to get revenge on his former partner who framed him and has since risen in the police ranks. Eric Bana also stars.

Complicating things is Renner’s commitment to several other projects, most notably the forthcoming fourth “Mission: Impossible” project. He’s also attached to appear in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master,” James McTeigue’s indie period thriller “Raven,” Marvel’s ensemble superhero film “The Avengers,” and the horror/comedy “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters”.

Nicolas Chartier (“The Hurt Locker”) will produce the $20 million-budgeted ‘Virtue’.
