Benedict Samuel Joins Untitled Robert Zemeckis Film

Australian actor Benedict Samuel has joined the cast of TriStar’s untitled Robert Zemeckis pic starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Pic also stars James Badge Dale and Ben Kingsley and is based on Philippe Petit’s memoirs “To Reach the Clouds.”

Zemeckis will also produce along with with ImageMovers partners Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey. He is also co-writing the script with Christopher Browne and plans to shoot the film in 3D.

Gordon-Levitt will play Philippe Petit, the highwire artist who successfully walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers in 1974. Samuel plays a member of Gordon-Levitt’s crew.

Samuel can be seen next in the indie “Asthma” which also stars Krysten Ritter, Goran Visnjic, Nick Nolte, Rosanna Arquette and Iggy Pop and premieres next month at the Karlovy Vary Film Fest.

He is repped by WME, Management 360 and United Management in Australia.
