Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to star in Columbia TriStar’s “To Walk the Clouds,” Robert Zemeckis’ feature adaptation of the documentary “Man on Wire.”

Gordon-Levitt will play Philippe Pettit, the high-wire artist who successfully walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers in 1974.

Zemeckis is producing 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, who is repped by WME, can be seen next in Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”
