Edward Burns and Genesis Rodriguez have joined the heist thriller Man on a Ledge starring Sam Worthington and Elizabeth Banks.  Directed by Asger Leth (Ghosts of Cité Soleil), the film centers on a fugitive ex-cop (Worthington) who is pretending to be considering a leap to his death as a cover for a massive diamond heist.  Banks plays the negotiator trying to talk him down.  The film also stars Jamie Bell and Anthony Mackie.  According to THR, Burns will play “a rival negotiator who tries to swoop in when he believes Banks has a conflict of interest,” while Rodriguez plays “Bell’s girlfriend who, along with Bell, tries to prove Worthington’s innocence.”

Burns recently wrapped production on Nice Guy Johnny, which he directed and stars in.  Rodriguez recently nabbed the female lead in Will Ferrell’s Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi padre.
