What Is Cleaner About? (Daisy Ridley Film)
Cleaner is described as being a timely action-thriller movie that’s set in present-day London where radical activists take over an energy company’s annual gala at the Shard, Western Europe’s tallest skyscraper, where they seize 300 hostages to expose the corruption of its hosts.
However, the story takes a turn as an extremist among the activists’ ranks hijacks everything and makes it clear that they’re willing to kill everyone in the tower to get their message out to the world.
Daisy Ridley stars as ex-soldier turned window cleaner Joey Locke, the titular character, who ends up being suspended 90 stories up on the outside of the skyscraper – and in Die Hard fashion needs to figure out a way to save everyone inside, stop the killers, and bring the rich energy heads to justice.
The movie is also set to star Clive Owen.
Cleaner, starring Daisy Ridley, does not yet have a release date.
