No Fear Avengers: Infinity War Fans, Hawkeye Is In the ‘Tag’ Trailer

Hawkeye has been found! Contrary to popular belief the Avenger will be featured on the big screen in 2018, but it’s probably not in the movie you want him in. He’ll be starring, or shall I say his alter ego Jeremy Renner, will be starring in a Warner Bros. produced film called Tag, and yes, it’s the type of tag you’re thinking about. As you’ll find out in the trailer above, tag isn’t just a game for kids, because Renner’s new film is based on a true story about a group of friends who have played a game of tag for over 30 years.

The concept is a bit odd, but it is based on a true story, and the cast is loaded with big name talent, so there’s promise. Plus, the action looks amazing for a movie about grown men playing a game of tag. This comedy at least looks like it has a funny concept, so while Renner’s Hawkeye may not be in Avengers: Infinity War this April, we’ll get to see him as a master of tag in Tag this June. Head on down below for more information on the film.

About Tag

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry: “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, the New Line Cinema comedy “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

“Tag” is directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”), with a starring ensemble cast led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”), Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”), Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker,” “The Town”). The “Tag” screenplay was written by Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”) and Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”), screen story by Mark Steilen, and based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It,” by Russell Adams. The film is produced by Todd Garner and Mark Steilen, with Hans Ritter, Richard Brener, Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, production designer David Sandefur, editor Josh Crockett, and costume designer Denise Wingate.

“Tag” is set for a June 15, 2018, release.
