Beware terrorists! In Hadi Hajaig's upcoming action thriller, Sean Bean is what you call a Cleanskin and according to Wikipedia, its a term commonly used in the UK to describe an undercover operative whose identity is not known to the forces he is tasked to infiltrate. In another words, expect to see Bean to violently beat, stab and shoot his way out of a terrorist bombing attack. I wouldn't want to be on his hunting list.
Sophisticated British action thriller CLEANSKIN explodes onto cinema
screens in March with an exciting cast lead by Sean Bean, who plays
Ewan, a Secret Service Agent working undercover in the criminal
underbelly of London. His mission is to pose as the body guard of a
small time arms dealer and discover who he is selling the Semtex to.
However, when they are brazenly ambushed by a masked gunman in a West
End hotel lobby, Ewan is shot and wounded and the dealer assassinated.
The Semtex is stolen.
Days later, a suicide bomber detonates
himself inside a busy London restaurant and the Secret Services worse
fears are confirmed -- the stolen Semtex was used in the bombing. There
is a terrorist cell operating in London, hell bent on bringing death
and destruction to the nation's capital. Briefed by his operators
(Charlotte Rampling and James Fox), Ewan is tasked with finding the
cell and executing them. His orders are to terminate with extreme
prejudice. Operating off grid, no one will know what his mission is;
and if he is caught, they will deny all knowledge.
Ewan, the mastermind behind these bombings is Ash (Abhin Galeya), an
idealistic embittered young man, who was 'turned' whilst at University.
Ash is utterly devoted to the cause but with no criminal history, he is
every agent's worst nightmare. He is a 'cleanskin': a terrorist with no
previous convictions and unknown to the national security services. Can
Ewan take him out before the unthinkable occurs?
The film will be released in UK cinemas by Warner Bros. Pictures on March 9th.
