Actor Anthony Mackie is in negotiations to join the cast of Summit Entertainment's upcoming movie Man on a Ledge, according to Variety.

We reported in July that Sam Worthington is already attached to star in the project, which centers on a former NYPD cop who threatens to jump from a building, and his relationship with the female psychologist who tries to talk him down. It wasn't clear what role Anthony Mackie had signed onto play.

Asger Leth is directing the movie from a script by Pablo Fenjves.
