Oh joy!: Daniel Radcliffe will oversee the long and arduous construction of the famous Brooklyn Bridge in ... Brooklyn Bridge.
British actor Daniel Radcliffe will play Washington Roebling, the young engineer who oversaw the long and arduous construction of the famous Brooklyn Bridge, in a forthcoming period drama.
Radcliffe, 24, has agreed to star in Brooklyn Bridge, according to production company Goldcrest. The feature will portray the various setbacks encountered by engineers and workers during the 14-year construction of the bridge connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn in New York.
The story will open with how Roebling was tasked with overseeing construction on the bridge following the death of his father, John A. Roebling, in an accident in 1869. The plot will emphasise the relationship between Washington and his wife, Emily, who allowed him to continue his work on the bridge even when he was paralysed due to decompression sickness.
Brooklyn Bridge will be presented to cinema professionals at the European Film Market, held on the sidelines of the Berlin Film Festival in February.
Director Douglas McGrath (Infamous) is scheduled to begin principal photography on the feature in August 2014.
