The action-thriller feature The Doorman, starring Ruby Rose (The Meg, Batwoman) and French actor Jean Reno (Leon: The Professional), has filled out its lead cast with an eclectic collection of stars from around the world, including U.K. actor Rupert Evans, Norwegian actor Aksel Hennie, U.S. actor Julian Feder, Japanese actor Hideaki Ito and Danish actor David Sakurai.

The Doorman tells the story of an officer in the Marines who encountered traumatic events while serving her country and returns home looking for an opportunity to heal. She seeks refuge as a doorman at a labyrinthine, historic New York apartment building — until she encounters mercenaries who are intent upon destroying everything in their way to retrieve precious art hidden in its walls.
