Tyler and Wilson step onto Ledge

The Hollywood Reporter have announced that Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson have been cast in a new suspense flick called The Ledge .

Directed by first-time writer-director Matthew Chapman, the two acting titans have joined Terrence Howard and Charlie Hunnam.

Overseen by Monster producer Mark Damon, the film’s plot follows a man (Hunnam) who threatens to jump off the ledge of a high-rise building at noon. A policeman (Howard) attempts to coax him down.

Says Chapman: “ The Ledge examines the different and sometimes dangerous beliefs people adopt as a means of surviving emotional trauma.”

Meanwhile, producer Michael Mailer said: "As more and more films succumb to the visual wizardry of 3D, The Ledge explores the fourth dimension: the interior life of tortured souls hovering over the precipice of emotional nullity.

“This film is the reason why I became an independent filmmaker and why I continue to suffer in the trenches of independent filmmaking."

Tyler will also be appearing this year in Super , the James Gunn comedy drama about an ordinary Joe who becomes a superhero (it’s not Kick-Ass ).
