Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as legendary high wire walker Philippe Petit in this biopic.
Yet another production has wrapped principal photography and this time it’s the Robert Zemeckis helmed biopic on Philippe Petit. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, The Walk is a true account based on Petit’s epic but illegal wire walk between the World Trade Center Towers in August 1974.
Although the stunt remains the focal point of the story, a large portion of the film is also based on Petit’s book ‘To Reach The Clouds’. The astounding World Trade Center wire walk, which ironically celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, will be brought to vivid life in 3D at the third act climax of the film.
Also starring in the film are James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon, Clément Sibony and César Domboy. The Walk is scheduled for release in October 2015.
