Sam Worthington is the "Man on a Ledge"Posted: Updated:
"You read it, you get caught up in it," Worthington said of the script.
Shooting Worthington, who spends the entire movie on ledge on the side of a building, took some creativity and more than a little planning.
"We didn't know how much we could do out there," he said. "The more energetic I got on that ledge, the more energetic the camera guys could get, which is to their credit. They did a great job."
If a man on a ledge sounds potentially boring, think again. It's anything but.
"I feel like a lot of movies now, they either have suspense and no thrill, or thrill and no suspense,"said Worthington's co-star Anthony Mackie ("Hurt Locker," "Million Dollar Baby," "We Are Marshall"). "I think this is one of those old-school movies where you get both."
"Man on a Ledge" is rated PG-13 and is in theaters now.
