Sir Ben Kingsley and French actress Charlotte Le Bon are set to join actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a new biopic about high-wire stuntman Philippe Petit. Director Robert Zemeckis will take charge of the big screen adaption of the daredevil's memoir, To Reach the Clouds. Petit made history in 1974 when he 'walked' between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. The feat was later recounted in the Oscar-winning 2008 documentary Man on Wire.
