Renner, 43, filmed in the rain in the English capitol, channeling his character William Brandt. The 45-year-old actor started off his scene within a phone booth, peering out cautiously from the windowpanes. Taking to the slick streets, Renner kept warm in a tan coat and was shielded from the precipitation by an umbrella-holding assistant.
While both Renner and Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise have most recently been shooting in England, the film has taken the actors to a number of countries, including Austria and Morocco.
It was rumored earlier this year that after wrapping Mission: Impossible 5 that Renner would be taking his talents to the small screen in a TV show similar to True Detective. However, Renner recently revealed that the rumors were untrue, as his schedule has him tied up in previous commitments.
“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,” Renner told Yahoo TV. “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.”
In addition to Renner and Cruise, Mission: Impossible 5 will star Paula Patton, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Peg and Alec Baldwin.
Mission: Impossible 5 is slated to hit theaters Dec. 25, 2015.
