Mobius gets ‘Cleaner’ pic

Spec script finds a buyer

Mobius Entertainment has bought “The Cleaner,” a spec script by the writing team of Steven List and Astrid Neal.

Comedy centers on a hellish temp hired by companies whenever they want one of their employees to quit. He meets his match when hired to get rid of someone who proves to be even more annoying than he is.

Josh Woodward is producing and Mobius president David Bergstein will oversee the pic with exec Tracee Stanley Newell.

The scribes previously sold “Born to Shop” to Fox 2000, “Venus” to Phoenix Pictures and “Chance of a Lifetime” to Baldwin Entertainment. List also made the short film “Shibubu,” which he co-wrote with Neal. It drew kudos at the 2002 Digital Film Festival and led to List’s selection for Fox Searchlight’s Searchlab directors program.
