Daniel Radcliffe Will Build Douglas McGrath’s Brooklyn Bridge


24-year-old British actor Daniel Radcliffe continues to make interesting and somewhat eclectic choices following his ten-year run as Harry Potter in the blockbuster Warner Bros. franchise, and the latest news has Radcliffe teaming with filmmaker Douglas McGrath (Emma, Infamous) for his new movie Brooklyn Bridge with plans to begin shooting in August.

In the movie, Radcliffe will play an engineer who takes on the job of overseeing the building of the Brooklyn Bridge after his father passes away and the press release adds: “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.”

The U.K.-based Goldcrest Films is bankrolling the film, which is being produced by Killer Films’ Christine Vachon.

Radcliffe’s interesting post-“Potter” choices have included the recent Kill Your Darlings, Horns and The F Word, all three of which played the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Upcoming, he will play Igor in 20th Century Fox’s planned reboot of Frankenstein, which is already scheduled for January 16, 2015.
