August 26th, 2014

Jeremy Renner could reprise the role of Hawkeye in 'Captain America 3'.

The actor, who appeared in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' alongside the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson, admits he's not sure of whether or not he will appear in the eagerly-awaited flick, but says rumours about the cast and script are starting to emerge.

He said: ''There are rumblings of 'Captain America 3'. I don't know what's going to happen there. I've got to find the time, man! I'm trying to stay home and I can't.''

The script for the new flick is currently being penned by Joe and Anthony Russo, with the movie set to open in the UK on May 6, 2016.

Before then, however, will be the next instalment in the 'Avengers' franchise, which may give some clues as to what fan can expect from 'Captain America 3'.

Meanwhile, Renner has been confirmed as part of the cast for the next 'Mission: Impossible' film, which will also star Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg.

Pegg, 44, recently spoke of his joy at playing the role of gadget nerd Benji Dunn for the third time, saying: ''It's my third one and I'm very excited to be back on that train, it's a very exciting ride.''

The film will open in the UK on December 26, 2015.
