Jeremy Renner on the Emotional War of "Wind River" (Den of Geek)

We spoke with Renner about his new thriller, his producing plans and, of course, Hawkeye.

Jeremy Renner has excelled in his career at playing everyman characters faced with difficult and often overwhelming circumstances, both in the world around them and within their own souls and hearts. Whether it’s in The Hurt Locker, The Town or Kill the Messenger -- even his Hawkeye/Clint Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is perhaps the most grounded of all the characters in that franchise, a man who sets out to do a job so he can return to his family as soon as possible.

In Wind River, Renner adds to that gallery of incisive portrayals as Cory Lambert, a game tracker for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who lives and works on the remote Wind River Reservation, where he has somehow managed to navigate politics and earn the trust of the wounded families living on the land. His discovery of a frozen body in the snow not only puts a horrifying tragedy from his own life front and center again, but triggers an investigation -- on which he teams with a rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) -- that will lead Lambert into some dark corners of the region and its denizens.

Renner sat with Den of Geek recently to discuss this unsettling new film, which completes a loose thematic trilogy about the modern American frontier -- following Hell or High Water and Sicario -- from writer Taylor Sheridan, who also makes his directorial debut on Wind River. Renner himself is back in the MCU as we speak, donning his Hawkeye gear for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, and also has a comedy in the pipeline called Tag.

The Laws of Nature, the Study of Violence: Taylor Sheridan Takes Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen to "Wind River" (MovieMaker Magazine)

“There’s an interesting thing about this business,” says Taylor Sheridan.

“It tells you what you’re supposed to be doing. A lot of times you don’t want to—or can’t—hear what it’s telling you. But it’s telling you.”

After 20 years in the trenches as a journeyman actor on everything from Walker, Texas Ranger, Star Trek: Enterprise, and NYPD Blue to Veronica Mars and Sons of Anarchy, Sheridan had come to see that his muse was leading him across the production floor, to the other side of the camera.

“I learned what I was—why I was only so successful as an actor: Acting wasn’t really my gift,” he says. “I was pretty good. But I wasn’t Tom Hardy or Christian Bale. If I had been Tom Hardy, someone would’ve figured that out over the course of 15 or 20 years, because that doesn’t go unnoticed. I realized that the reason I’d had any success as an actor was because I had understood what the writer was trying to say. I understood stories.”

That hard-won awareness, and the burgeoning body of work it fostered, has positioned Sheridan as one of the most exciting and passionate “new” voices in American cinema. And what a voice. The pen behind the critically acclaimed features Sicario (2015) and Hell or High Water (2016), Sheridan now completes a trilogy of the American heartland with Wind River, a commanding directorial effort, for which he took home the Un Certain Regard Best Director prize at Cannes in May. Wind River pairs Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as a game warden and FBI agent, respectively, investigating a murder on the titular Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming, where they find a society haunted by demons of drug addiction and destitution.
