Daisy Ridley Signs On To Lead Action Thriller ‘Cleaner’

Daisy Ridley has signed on for the leading role in director Martin Campbell’s upcoming action thriller film called ‘Cleaner’. Production is expected to begin later this year.

“Cleaner is a nail-biting thriller, unique and original in both its characters and its setting. Much of the film takes place on the side of the Shard – hundreds of feet up in the air – and I want the audience to be up there with Joey in a stomach churning, vertiginous experience,” Campbell said in a statement. “There isn’t a more instinctive and powerful actress than Daisy right now to help us do just that. The majority of my movies have been thrillers and Cleaner is one of the best I’ve ever read.”

According to reports Ridley is set to portray Joey Locke, a former soldier-turned-window cleaner who has found herself in the middle of terrorist attack.

“Set in present-day London, the film will see radical activists take over an energy company’s annual gala at the Shard – the tallest skyscraper in Western Europe – seizing 300 hostages in order to expose the corruption of the hosts,” reads the synopsis.

“Their just cause is hijacked by a zealous extremist within their ranks, who is ready to murder everyone in the building to send his anarchic message to the world. It falls to an ex-soldier turned window cleaner, Joey Locke – suspended 90 stories up on the outside of the building – to save those trapped inside and take down the killers, whilst also finding a way to bring the corrupt energy moguls to justice.”
