The trailer is out for the new Robert Zemeckis film based on French High-Wire Artist Philippe Petit. The Walk has an international cast led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale and Ben Schwartz.
What lies ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I don’t know if I’ll be able to completely suspend my disbelief when it comes to the French accent.
Still, somehow the story of a man who chooses to walk on a wire from great heights, and without any safety precautions is probably interesting enough to convince me. That is unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.
Happy The Walk 🙂
