Cara Delevingne to Star in ‘The Climb’ Thriller About a 2013 Greenpeace Action
Beta Cinema announced that it has acquired the rights to the climate change-themed action movie called “The Climb”. Cara Delevingne, who has added acting to her modeling career, will play the lead role in the movie.
Inspired by a true event, the film will tell the story of a group of Greenpeace activist women who climbed the Shard skyscraper in London, Europe’s tallest building, to protest oil company Shell’s plans to drill in the Arctic.
Cara Delevingne, who started her acting career in 2012 with Anna Karenina directed by Joe Wright, has progressed by acting in films such as Paper Towns, Suicide Squad, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and will play a daring activist who is the brain and heart of this impressive protest.
Hayley Easton Street, who sits in the director’s chair of “The Climb”, has previously directed the visual effects of films such as Justice League, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Thor: The Dark World. “The Climb” will be Hayley Easton Street’s directorial debut.
Easton Street said of the project: “My passion for this project is unwavering. It’s a great subject and an excellent technical challenge for me. I’ll use the skills I’ve acquired and developed over the last 20 years, ‘The Climb’ covers every aspect of my life and work so far. I’m thrilled to be bringing the important environmental story, incredible characters, and breathtaking action to the screen.”
