The ‘Man on Wire’ returns to the screen

This one’s been in the making for a long time. Sony announced today, on the 40th anniversary of Philippe Petit’s remarkable (and illegal) wire-walk between the World Trade Center towers, that Robert Zemeckis’ film about that feat has completed principal photography. Called “The Walk,” and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit, it’s based on Petit’s book “To Reach the Clouds,” and will cover similar ground to the Oscar-winning 2008 documentary “Man on Wire.” (Have you seen it? Do.) I had the great pleasure of interviewing Petit, back in 2008, and he mentioned that Zemeckis had acquired the rights to a feature-film version of the story — making “The Walk,” in theaters in fall 2015, a seven-year journey. Here’s an early photo; I can’t wait to see this one.
