Jamie Bell is a Man On A Ledge

Anthony Mackie

Jamie Bell and Anthony Mackie are both in talks to star alongside Sam Worthington in cop drama Man On A Ledge .

Directed by Asger Leth, whose sole previous credit is documentary Ghosts Of Cité Soleil , the plot follows a former NYPD officer (Worthington) who threatens to throw himself off the top of a building.

It’s based on a script by TV movie writer Pablo Fenjves, and Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is backing the production.

No word on which roles Bell and Mackie are in negotiation to play, though we imagine they might be new NYPD recruits.

Mackie has recently finished up work on sci-fis The Adjustment Bureau and Real Steel , while Bell will next be seen in Jane Eyre , and has been working on The Adventures Of Tintin .
