Actor Jeremy Renner broke down in tears when he first saw Arrival and said he “cannot believe” he was a part of the sci-fi drama.

The Hollywood actor plays mathematician Ian Donnelly in the sci-fi drama - which is based on Ted Chiang’s short story Story of Your Life - and he was amazed at how director Denis Villeneuve had managed to bring the script to life, saying that he was delighted to be a part of the project.

“When I saw the movie for the first time, it wasn’t done; the sound wasn’t done, the visual effects weren’t done. You saw the aliens once or twice. It was really kinda rough. But you got a sense of the scope,” Renner said.

“I got up, I went out of the theatre, I burst out, ‘That’s an amazing director,’ quote-unquote. I never said that.

“I ran out, fell in the parking lot and cried my eyes out. I said, ‘I can’t believe I’m a part of this. I cannot believe what that guy did with this beautiful script’.”
