It appears "Cleaner" will go straight to DVD. The release date, according to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's website, will be May 27. Dagnabbit! I was looking forward to seeing this noir flick on the big screen.
Variety didn't like it. Hollywood Reporter did very much, thank you.
DVD Active has the DVD box art.
The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes and Ed Harris and was shot in Shreveport by Nu Image/Millennium Films in 2007. Director is Renny Harlin ("Die Hard 2," "Mindhunters," "Cliffhanger," "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane," "The Long Kiss Goodnight.")
Nu Image/Millennium has made five films in Shreveport and is currently working on its sixth: "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt" starring Michael Douglas.
Past efforts include "Mad Money" (theatrical), "Blonde Ambition" (limited release in Texas, but mainly DVD), "My Mom's New Boyfriend" and "Major Movie Star."
Thanks, CB, for the tip.
