UPDATE: Jeremy Renner Broke His Arms Playing “Tag,” Not ‘Hawkeye’
UPDATE: Jeremy Renner did not fracture his arms on the set of Avengers: Infinity War as originally reported. According to the actor, he hasn’t even started filming his “Hawkeye” scenes yet.
Here’s how the mix up happened: last week Renner showed at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in arm braces. During the press conference promoting Wind River the actor mentioned that he “broke his arms” during a stunt on his current film.
Everyone assumed he was talking about the action packed superhero movie but they were wrong. It actually happened on the set of the film Tag.
Jeremy was unbelievably annoyed by the incorrect reporting, but instead of talking about that, lets chat about cool it is that this movie Tag is getting made. It’s based on the group of friends who traveled around the world crashing vacations and serious events playing an epic game of tag.
Jake Johnson, Hannibal Buress, Jon Hamm, Ed Helms and Isla Fisher are currently shooting with Renner in Atlanta.
