Actor Jeremy Renner says he cannot wait to play Steve McQueen in a forthcoming biopic, but says it will be really tough to portray the Great Escape star's life.

The 41-year-old is set to take on the role of the Hollywood legend in a new film loosely based on Marshall Terrill's 1993 biography, Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel, reported Daily Star.

"I think he is an icon. I've seen quite a few of his movies and I just thought he would be a really interesting guy to explore. Biopics are really tough - it's hard to tell someone's life story in two hours. He was a walking dichotomy: the most stingy and frugal person, and then the most giving. And his upbringing was interesting.

"The film will be more a slice of life rather than an entire life, but we're still figuring it out. I can't wait to jump into it," Renner said.
