Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) is an ex-cop turned con-man who threatens to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop in Man on a Ledge. The NYPD and FDNY show up to try and talk him down. They send in Lydia Anderson (Elizabeth Banks) to negotiate. Meanwhile, a huge diamond heist is being pulled off nearby and the suicide attempt is a cover for that. An emaciated Ed Harris looks to be the “bad guy” in the movie.
Man on a Ledge will be out January 13th, 2012.
