Jeremy Renner has confirmed to Yahoo! TV that he will again play William Brandt in Mission: Impossible 5. He joins the previously-confirmed Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg in the December 25, 2015 release.

Asked whether he could possibly have a role in the second season of "True Detective," Renner responded: "It's kind of unlikely. In fact, I'm kind of strapped time-wise doing Avengers 2, and Mission: Impossible 5 is rearing its head, and then they want to do another Bourne movie. It's unlikely I can find the time right now. And that's all right. It's just really high-class problems — pretty awesome to have. Even if I really wanted to do it, which I don't, I couldn't."

The trio starred together in the Brad Bird-directed Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which opened in December of 2011 and earned an impressive $694.7 million worldwide on a budget of $145 million. We would assume that Paula Patton will also be back as Jane Carter, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.

Mission: Impossible 5 will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote Edge of Tomorrow, now playing in theaters, and directed Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher.
