While promoting his latest film, ‘Reds,’ producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura told Blackfilm.com that Latina soap star Genesis Rodriguez, who was recently in HBO’s Entourage, has joined the cast of ‘Man on a Ledge.’

Best known for her roles in the Telemundo TV series ‘Prisionera,’ ‘Dame Chocolate’ and ‘Doña Bárbara,’ Rodriguez is the daughter of musician José Luis Rodríguez, who is also known by the nickname “El Puma.”

The Cuban-Venezuelan-American actress recently signed on as Will Ferrell’s love interest in the Spanish-language comedy called ‘Casa de mi padre.’

Directed by Asger Leth, the film stars Sam Worthington, Anthony Mackie, Jamie Bell, and Elizabeth Banks and centers on an ex-cop-turned-con who threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The NYPD dispatches a female police psychologist to talk him down but, unbeknownst to the cops on the scene, the suicide attempt is a cover for a massive diamond heist.

Worthington is set to play the cop, Bell will play Worthington’s brother, who happens to be planning a heist of a jewelry store across the street while the cop threatens suicide, while Mackie will play his ex-partner. Banks will be playing the NYPD crisis negotiator that tries to talk to the suicidal detective, who she has had a past relationship with.

Written by Pablo Fenjves, ‘Man on a Ledge’ is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Summit Entertainment.

Man On A Ledge begins filming November in New York.
