Another new project! Daniel Radcliffe is attached to star opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in Brooklyn Bridge, to be directed by Douglas McGrath. Daniel will play inexperienced engineer Washington Roebling.
Inspired by true events, it details the story of a brilliant but inexperienced engineer, Washington Roebling, who is left to oversee the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge when his father passes away. Besieged by calamity, danger and doubt, his obsession to get the job done threatens his health and his family until he discovers an improbable ally in his charming and shrewd wife.Goldcrest Films will finance, distribute and sell international rights to the project, which will be produced by Christine Vachon (also produced Kill Your Darlings) for Killer Films and Rose Ganguzza. Executive producers are Goldcrest’s Nick Quested and Pascal Degove together with Jill Samuels. Goldcrest Post will provide picture and sound post production services.
Goldcrest Films managing director Degove said:
"Having Daniel’s involvement is a massive coup for the film, not only is he perfect for the role, but he’s consistently proved himself to be one of the very few actors who is genuinely a massive draw for audiences of all ages."Vachon said:
"We love Doug’s extraordinary script and working with Daniel is one of the rare treats in the business …this is thrilling for everyone at Killer."The film is set to start filming in August.
