It’s a bit of a strange feeling, seeing New York City’s Twin Towers again. They are indeed Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s costars in the first teaser for The Walk, which tells the story of Philippe Petit, the only man ever to walk a tightrope between the two buildings (which he did in 1974).

While they don’t feature in this teaser, the film also stars Ben Kingsley as Petit’s mentor Papa Rudy, and Charlotte Le Bon as the love interest. It will appear in 3D and is directed by Robert Zemeckis, best known for classics like E.T. and Forrest Gump.

The movie doesn’t come out until October, 2015, so there aren’t many concrete details at this point. If JGL’s fiery red turtleneck is any indication, The Walk could be the fashion event of the year.
