Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson have both joined the upcoming suspense film, The Ledge. The movie already has Terrence Howard and Charlie Hunnam on board as the leads, and the latest actors will both appear in supporting roles. Production on the film already began shooting on Monday, so Tyler and Wilson are a bit late, but they’re still in the game.
The plot for The Ledge sounds eerily familiar to another film we’ve seen in the past decade. It centers on a young man (Hunnam) who’s standing on a high-rise ledge insisting that he must jump by noon as the policeman below (Howard) tries to manage the situation. I’m not saying its an exact replica of the scenario in Phone Booth, but it does have a life or death situation and a man in an isolated area being coaxed by a cop. Just throwing that out there.
There’s no real description of who Tyler and Wilson will play in the film, possibly family members, a love interest, who knows? The Ledge is an indie drama that comes from first-time writer-director Matthew Chapman. The film is currently shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The last time we saw Liv Tyler on the big screen it was for The Incredible Hulk and The Strangers, and Patrick Wilson appeared in last year’s Watchmen and he’ll be back this summer in the blockbuster, The A-Team.
What do you think about the plot of The Ledge? Does the film have a decent cast?
