Liv Tyler and Patrick Wilson are two actors I tend to love despite myself. They don't exactly make consistent choices-- I will never forget Wilson's sex scene as Nite Owl in Watchmen, nor the animal crackers scene in Armageddon-- but they always manage to stay likeable despite themselves. Hopefully they'll continue that charming streak in The Ledge, a new psychological indie thriller the two have signed on to star in, alongside Terrence Howard and Charlie Hunnam. Hunnam will play a man preparing to jump off a high ledge, with Howard as the cop trying to talk him out of it.

The film's director Matthew Chapman told THR, "The Ledge examines the different and sometimes dangerous beliefs people adopt as a means of surviving emotional trauma." Producer Mailer added in a jab at a certain glasses-requiring movie technology: "As more and more films succumb to the visual wizardry of 3D, The Ledge explores the fourth dimension: the interior life of tortured souls hovering over the precipice of emotional nullity. This film is the reason why I became an independent filmmaker and why I continue to suffer in the trenches of independent filmmaking."
