The sexy Sam Worthington, best known for his roles in Avatar and Clash of the Titans, is heading back to the big screen with a new thriller called “Man On A Ledge“. Here’s the premise of the film: “An ex-cop turned con (Sam Worthington) threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The NYPD dispatch a female police psychologist to talk him down. However, unbeknownst to the police on the scene, the suicide attempt is a cover for the biggest diamond heist ever pulled.”
As the trailer begins, Worthington narrates, “Today is the day everything changes… one way or another.” He then proceeds to climb out the window of a high rise building (20 stories up) where moments later, people on the street begin to worry about the “man on a ledge”. As the story unfolds, we realize that there’s a lot more to this situation than people realize.
Also starring in the film are Ed Harris, Edward Burns, Elizabeth Banks, and Jamie Bell among some other familiar faces. Provided there is no apocalypse, the film will be hitting theaters on January 13th, 2012.
