The TriStar film chronicles Philippe Petit's journey across the Twin Towers
While the project was formerly known as “To Reach the Clouds,” Sony said the film is currently untitled in a press release sent to press on Tuesday. It's unclear whether “The Walk” is the new title, or simply a working title at this point, as a representative for Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Valentine will play Barry Greenhouse, who was known as The Inside Man among the team that helped sneak Philippe Petit (Gordon-Levitt) into the Twin Towers.
Chris Browne wrote the script with Zemeckis, who is producing with Steve Starkey and Jack Rapke. Jackie Levine and Cherylanne Martin will executive produce.
It's been a busy year already for Valentine, who recently guest starred on “Supernatural,” “CSI,” “Perception,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Big Bang Theory” and “Hot In Cleveland.” The “Crossing Jordan” alum also voiced an Egyptian priest in DreamWorks Animation's “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” and reprised his role as King Alistair for Bioware's smash hit ”Dragon Age Inquisition.”
As a writer and creator, Valentine recently optioned projects to ITV and Muse Entertainment. He's repped by Amanda Rosenthal Talent Agency.
