Eva Mendes has signed on to the thriller, Cleaner for Millennium Films and Anonymous Content.

Christa Campbell is also joining the cast of Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris and Keke Palmer. The film centers on a former cop (Jackson) who makes his living cleaning up crime scenes. The Hollywood Reporter adds after cleaning a murder site, he discovers that the crime was never reported to the police and that he has unwittingly covered up a homicide. Mendes will play the widow of the slain man who turns to Jackson for help. Campbell will be a coach to Jackson's daughter (Palmer).

Cleaner is directed by Renny Harlin; production began Monday in Louisiana.
