It was a shame when Danish director Asger Leth‘s first studio feature fell apart just five weeks before production this year. Cartel was an action thriller starring Josh Brolin that was set amongst the drug wars of Mexico. 24 Frames is now reporting the Ghosts of Cite Soleil director has a new feature set up.
He will direct Sam Worthington in the thriller Man on the Ledge for Summit and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The action thriller surrounds a female psychologist and a suicidal New York City cop.
Not many more details are known, but a TV movie of the same name was a remake of the 1951 film Fourteen Hours, which was one-location shoot just about a man about to jump off a ledge. It sounds like this could follow the same style. We will keep you updated.
Summit is planning to shoot “as early as this winter.”
Are you a fan of Ghosts of Cite Soleil? Looking forward to what Asger Leth does next?
