Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Star in To Walk the Clouds

As if you didn't find JGL charming enough. As rumored, Robert Zemeckis will direct Joseph Gordon-Levitt in To Walk the Clouds, a drama adaptation of the documentary Man on Wire about French aerialist Philippe Petit. As you might recall, Petit tightrope-walked between the Twin Towers in 1974, later going on to perform walks over Niagara Falls and to the second story of the Eiffel Tower. Petit is alive today, which is sort of an unintentional spoiler, but seeing as how the film will be shot in 3-D, we're sure we'll be digging our nails into the armrests nonetheless.
