Toronto 2010: Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Garner will have an affair (on screen)

September 15, 2010 |  4:41 pm

EXCLUSIVE: Those who liked seeing Jeremy Renner get tough in an Iraqi desert may soon enjoy the temperamental opposite: watching the actor get meek in a small-town pharmacy.

The Oscar best actor nominee is closely circling the indie film project "Better Living Through Chemistry," a film from writer-director team David Posamentier and Geoff Moore. Jennifer Garner is poised to star opposite Renner as a bored trophy wife who has an affair with the medicine man.

The movie, which has been packaged by ICM and is set up with "The Wackness" producer Occupant Films, looks at how the two break out of their respective ruts when they have a chemically-fueled affair. Up-and-comers Posamentier and Moore are set to direct from their own script.

Renner, who soon will be seen in Ben Affleck's crime drama "The Town," is next set to shoot "Mission: Impossible IV." He also will appear in Joss Whedon's upcoming "Avengers" movie. But he is said to be keen on "Chemistry," and could shoot it after the "M:I" film. Still left to be cast in "Chemistry" is the female supporting role of Renner's girlfriend.

Occupant, for its part, premieres the Rainn Wilson-Sara Silverman comedy "Peep World" at Toronto Wednesday night.
