“The Ledge” was written by Matthew Chapman, who also directs.
“In this race-against-time thriller,” press notes state, “the opposing philosophies of two men embroiled in a complicated love triangle with a beautiful woman (Liv Tyler) escalate into a lethal battle of wills. Ultimately, the believer (Patrick Wilson) forces the non-believer (Charlie Hunnam) onto the ledge of a tall building. He gives him one hour to make a choice between his own life and someone else’s, while a policeman (Terrence Howard) tries to convince him to come down from the ledge. Without faith in an afterlife, will he be capable of such a sacrifice?”
Stage and screen favorite Patrick Wilson and his wife Dagmara Dominczyk Wilson welcomed the birth of a baby boy on August 9th, according to PEOPLE. The couple have named the child Kassian McCarrell. This is the second son for the family; they have a three-year old named Kalin Patrick.
