The trailer is out for The Walk, the new Robert Zemeckis directed film based on French High-Wire artist Philippe Petit.
The international cast is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz...
What appears to lie ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I’m not quite sure yet whether 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 of course unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.
