James Badge Dale, Ben Kingsley and Charlotte Le Bon Join Robert Zemeckis Tightrope Tale

James Badge Dale, Ben Kingsley and Charlotte Le Bon are in talks to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt in TriStar Productions untitled drama based on  Philippe Petit’s memoirs “To Reach the Clouds.”

Robert Zemeckis is directing and will 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.

Badge Dale, who is repped by CAA and MJ Management, has a handful of films set to bow this year including “A Relative Stranger” and “Blackbird.” The CAA and Independent Talent Group-repped Kingsley also has a busy year appearing in Fox’s “Night at the Museum 3” and “Exodus: Gods and Kings.”

Le Bon can be seen next in DreamWorks’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey.” She is repped by UTA.
