Jamie Bell has joined the cast of the crime drama “Man on a Ledge” for Summit Entertainment reports Deadline.
Aussie spunk Sam Worthington plays a cop falsely imprisoned who escapes after being let out for his father’s funeral and stands on a hotel ledge threatening suicide.
Bell plays his brother, the planner of a heist of a jewellery store across the street while his brother’s actions are keeping everyone occupied. It was reported earlier that Anthony Mackie is in negotiations to play the disgraced cop’s ex-partner.
The role of the female psychiatrist who tries to talk the cop down from his precarious perch has yet to be cast, though Amy Adams is rumoured to be interested.
Erich and Jon Hoeber are presently re-writing Pablo Fenjves’s script. Shooting kicks off in November in New York.
