I am not sure how many of you have watch the incredible documentary about French high-wire artist Philippe Petit attempt to cross WTC Twin Towers on a wire called ‘Man on Wire‘. If you haven’t, you should. ‘The Walk’ is basically a fictionalized version of the same story where Gordon-Levitt plays Philippe Petit. The film is going to open New York Film Festival in September and is directed by Robert Zemeckis (‘Forest Gump’, ‘Castaway’) so expect some awards attention too.
Check out the trailer below.
