Elizabeth Banks joins Sam Worthington and Anthony Mackie in Man On A Ledge
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
We’ve been reporting casting news on the upcoming MAN ON A LEDGE for a while now, each time I’ve wondered why they haven’t cast a female lead in what would seemingly be the second largest part. Well, today we have our answer as the lovely and versatile Elizabeth Banks has officially signed on to star opposite Sam Worthington in MAN ON A LEDGE. The film is about a NYPD officer that threatens to leap to his death while talking it over to a female psychologist. Along with Worthington, Anthony Mackie and Jamie Bell are also attached to star in the film for director Asger Leth.
I really like Elizabeth Banks, but I wouldn’t say her addition to this cast makes me any more or less excited to see the film. We need a little more information about the plot, along with a reason why Worthington’s character is threatening to jump. The film has gone through a couple of rewrites, so let’s hope they found something that works.
