The cast of the upcoming thriller/drama Man on a Ledge just gained two more actors. According to THR, Edward Burns and Genesis Rodriguez have both signed on to star in the Asger Leth directed film. Man on a Ledge is just one of the many projects that Summit Entertainment currently has in rotation. Take a look at the rest of its noteworthy cast…
Man on a Ledge stars “Sam Worthington as a fugitive ex-cop perched on the ledge of a high-rise building while a hard-living NYPD hostage negotiator (Elizabeth Banks) tries to talk him down. The longer they are on the ledge, the more she realizes he might have an ulterior objective.” The cast also includes Anthony Mackie and Jamie Bell.
“Genesis Rodriguez plays Bell’s girlfriend who, along with Bell, tries to prove Worthington’s innocence. Burns is a rival negotiator who tries to swoop in when he believes Banks has a conflict of interest.”
Are we the only ones who think of that scene in The Fugitive when Harrison Ford was standing on the edge of that sewer that flowed into the river? He was a fugitive on some type of ledge, and he was trying to prove his innocence. There are a lot of similarities there, but I’m not sure if I can imagine Worthington pulling something like that off.
