Newborn Bourne star Jeremy Renner is looking to diversify. After lining up several action franchises over the last year — in addition to supplanting Matt Damon as the lead in the Bourne movies, he's also committed to future installments of Mission: Impossible and Marvel movies that will feature his Hawkeye character — the actor has started a production company and is developing a biopic of one of the coolest action heroes ever: Steve McQueen. The Hollywood Reporter says James Gray — who last directed Two Lovers — will write the screenplay. We can definitely see Renner as McQueen, but who should play his Ali MacGraw? [HR]
