RED Writers To Retool Sam Worthington’s “Man On A Ledge”
Screenwriters Erich and Jon Hoeber have entered negotiations with Summit Entertainment to rewrite the script for the studio’s new film “Man on a Ledge.” The duo recently wrote the script for the upcoming thriller “Red” which is also a Summit production.
The heist film has made several big steps forward in recent weeks, picking up a director to go along with a star actor and producer already lined up. Sam Worthington is set to star in the film which will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and now director Asger Leth began negotiations to helm the project. The film follows a former cop turned con artist who uses a suicide attempt to cover-up a diamond heist. The ex-cop threatens to jump from the roof of a Manhattan hotel, drawing the attention of NYPD while a diamond heist occurs.
The Hoeber’s have been busy as of late. The duo wrote the script for the upcoming film “Red” which has Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman set to star; and also wrote the script for “Battleship.”
