"The Hurt Locker" star Jeremy Renner already has set his next two projects and is heavily considering a top secret third one.

According to Reuters: The first off the block is "Raven," an indie period thriller co-starring Ewan McGregor which Renner begin work on shortly. The story is a fictional spin on acclaimed author Edgar Allan Poe's final five days when he joins a hunt for a serial killer who has been inspired by his macabre stories.

After that Renner is in talks to star in Peter Berg's film adaptation of the classic board game "Battleship" for Universal Pictures. That film goes into production this summer for a May 2012 release.

He's also had half a dozen meetings for another project, but declined to reveal what that would be, other than it will also be shooting over the summer, as well, and he may have to choose between it and "Battleship."

I’ve liked Renner ever since I saw him in “The Assassination of Jesse James,” and his performance in “The Hurt Locker” was one for the ages. I think Peter Berg’s “Battleship” project has a lot of potential, so if Renner chooses to go in that direction, he might have a blockbuster on his hands.

Either way, it will be great to see such a talented actor like Renner up on screen in a few more projects. If you haven’t seen “The Hurt Locker,” go out and get it on DVD, because it’s pure filmmaking at its best and Renner is fantastic.

    can't wait to see what he has lined up next. He was pretty good in the "Hurt Locker" crossing my fingers for the Oscars.
