First look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit in ‘The Walk’

The Walk

Forty years ago, almost to the day, Philippe Petit did the unthinkable and completed a high-wire walk between the World Trade Towers.

Now arrives our first official look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit in Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming biopic The Walk, courtesy of USA Today.

Petit’s incredible feat was previously brought to the screen in the Oscar-winning doco Man on Wire in 2008.

The Walk, due out July 2014, will have a very hard time topping that flick, but with a cast that also includes Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, and Charlotte Le Bon, not to mention consummate entertainer Zemeckis at the helm, this could still be a lively re-staging of what’s called “the artistic crime of the century.”

Fair warning: if this gets released in 3-D, you may want to bring a sick bag.
