Benedict Samuel is set to star in THE WALK (previously known as “To Reach the Clouds”), a biopic based on the real life tightrope walker Philippe Petit who successfully walked a tightrope between the Twin Towers in 1974. Samuel joins Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Petit. Samuel has been cast as part of the crew who help Petit pull off the dangerous stunt.
The Australian actor is best known for his role in Aussie series “Home and Away.” Samuel will next star the drama “Asthma” opposite Krysten Ritter, which centers on New York City’s indie rock scene and the consequences of its “live fast, die young” mentality.
