Elizabeth Banks to step out on “Ledge” with Worthington

Hollywoodnews.com: How much room do they have on that ledge?

We’ll find out soon enough once Asger Leth releases his thriller “Man on a Ledge” in 2012. The drama – about an ex-cop threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop – already has lured Sam Worthington, Amy Adams, Jamie Bell and Anthony Mackie of “The Hurt Locker.” Now we’re learning that beautiful Elizabeth Banks will join the growing ensemble, according to Variety.

The script has a role for a female psychologist, who must talk down the disturned cop. But up to this point, I assumed that would be Adams. Maybe it’s Banks? Maybe one of them will play the cop’s love interest?

Banks certainly has plenty on her plate. Her “30 Rock” character figures to play a major role now that she’s carrying Alec Baldwin’s baby. And according to IMDB, Banks also has roles in “My Idiot Brother” with Paul Rudd as well as Paul Haggis’ “The Next Three Days” with Russell Crowe. But those films are in post-production, so Banks has time to climb out on that “Ledge” with Worthington.
