Jamie Bell joins Anthony Mackie and Sam Worthington in Man on a Ledge
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
We just learned that Anthony Mackie joined the cast of MAN ON A LEDGE and hot on the heels of that news comes word that Billy Elliot himself, Jamie Bell, is set to star in the thriller as well. As you recall, Sam Worthington stars in the film as a NYPD officer that’s threatening to jump to his death while a female psychologist deals with the drama. I was sure before, but the addition of Bell and Mackie in the film prove that there’s something more complicated going on here than just a man standing on a ledge. When I first read about the film, I thought it would take an overly simplistic route ala PHONE BOOTHE, but now it looks like it will be more complicated.
Asger Leth is directing the film from a script by Pablo Fenjves. The film is described as a “cop thriller” and if they follow the path of other recent cop thrillers, there’s going to be some crooked cops and a cover-up or two.
