Sam Worthington Man On Ledge image online

Man On Ledge

Sam Worthington knows his way around a sword and a Terminator, but his new movie’s getting him acquainted with something far cooler – a ledge.

Yup, as this first image from his currently-shooting thriller Man On Ledge shows, the Aussie actor’s taking a bit of a breather from macho fist-bruising to grab some fresh air on a high rise.

It’s all a bit more serious than that, of course. Worthington’s playing a fugitive ex-cop who takes up residence on the ledge of a high rise, while Elizabeth Banks’ NYPD hostage negotiator attempts to talk him down.

But just why is this cop refusing to come down? Could he be hiding something?

Accompanying this first look at the flick comes news that Ed Harris has also joined the cast as a powerful businessman. We’re going to go out on a, uh, limb and say he’ll nail it.

Man On Ledge is being directed by Asger Leth ( Ghosts Of City Soleil ), and also stars Anthony Mackie, Jamie Bell and Edward Burns.
