Jeremy Renner on "Wind River," Hopes for "Infinity War," and His "Mission: Impossible" Future (Screen Crush)

In Taylor Sheridan’s snowy western Wind River, Jeremy Renner plays a quiet divorcee and grieving father who spends his days tracking game on a Wyoming reservation. Renner’s Cory Lambert is one of the only (if not the only) white man on the land, but his Native American ex-wife (Julia Jones) and young son give him a sense of connection to the community and its people. After the body of a young Native American woman is found in the middle of a snowy hillside, Cory remembers a similar loss he suffered years ago. Along with FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) and the local sheriff (Graham Greene), Cory attempts to solve the murder mystery.

Last month I caught up with the Oscar nominee to chat about his role in the crime drama, his penchant for characters who are great with weapons – how good does Renner have to be in real life to fake his marksmanship onscreen? – and what it was like working with fellow Avenger Olsen on a smaller movie. Renner also expertly dodged my questions about Infinity War, but revealed there will be more Hawkeye in the upcoming Marvel movie. The actor himself also confirmed that no, Hawkeye won’t appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp despite a previous rumor.

This character is much quieter and more introspective than a lot of the more action-intensive roles that you’ve played.

Yup. Yeah, for sure.

What initially drew you to playing Cory and this film?

I think it was the inner complexity that was fascinating to me, kind of how to express that and not express that. I initially thought that he’d be much more stoic and stone-like, but I found very quickly that the challenge was going to be the restraint of emotions that were coming up in particular scenes. And I guess I wanted to be very conscious towards the end of the movie when there’s a catharsis, a healing process sort of happens. So it became, instead of one big release, sigh of relief for the guy, it ended up being a slow leak of emotions slipping out throughout the picture. And it was a great challenge.

"Wind River" New Role for Jeremy Renner (Boston Herald)

Murder mystery set on reservation

There’s trouble on Wyoming’s Wind River Native American reservation, and it’s the personal kind for Jeremy Renner’s tracker, Corey Lambert.

In a role far removed from his high-flying Hawkeye in the “Avengers” series, Friday’s “Wind River” sees Renner, 46, as a wildlife officer reluctantly drawn into the murder investigation of a young woman by a rookie FBI officer (Elizabeth Olsen).

“For me, learning about Native American life on the reservation, the atrocities that have happened, was a great learning experience in many ways.”

Lambert, he noted, “is the only white man that’s allowed on the reservation, essentially. He’s there inadvertently because he was married to a Native American woman and he’s accepted enough into the culture to do the things he does.

“He’s a broken man trying to overcome his own personal obstacles.”

Those include a young son he rarely sees.
