Two-time Oscar-nominated actor Jeremy Renner is in critical but stable condition in hospital following a weather-related accident that took place on Sunday.
A spokesperson says in a statement: “We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather-related accident whilst plowing snow earlier today. His family is with him, and he is receiving excellent care.”
The actor was reportedly airlifted earlier today to a hospital near his house in the local area near Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe near Reno, Nevada in the United States. The region saw a winter storm hit on New Year’s Eve yesterday, resulting in 35,000 homes losing power.
Further details about the accident and his injuries have not yet been released to the public, and this article will be updated once more details are available.
Renner is not new to serious injury. An accident whilst filming “Tag” in 2017 saw Renner break both his arms in a scene where he was attempting to climb a set of stacked chairs. The rigging on the chairs broke during the filming, which led to him falling and subsequently going to hospital for treatment.
Renner has starred in multiple Marvel movies and series as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and is rumored to be reprising the role for the upcoming “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty”.
He broke through in 2002’s “Dahmer” and 2003’s “S.W.A.T.” before scoring notable roles in “28 Weeks Later,” “North Country,” “Lords of Dogtown,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” “The Bourne Legacy,” “American Hustle,” “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” “Arrival” and the fourth and fifth “Mission: Impossible” films.
He scored those Oscar nominations for “The Town” and “The Hurt Locker,” and is currently starring as the lead in the second season of Taylor Sheridan’s series “Mayor of Kingstown” which premieres January 15th.
