The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.

After negotiations first broke surrounding the role last month, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has at last been confirmed to star in Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation at Tristar of Petit’s book, “To Reach The Clouds." Following the journey toward Philippe Petit’s daring stunt of tightrope-walking between the World Trade Center towers in 1974, the film will Zemeckis direct Levitt as Petit from a script written by him and Christopher Browne; also—this being Zemeckis—it will utilize 3D to gain the most stomach-lurching cinematography that the “Flight” helmer can muster.
