Brie Larson and Ben Kingsley will join Daniel Radcliffe in writer-director Doug McGrath’s period drama “Brooklyn Bridge, ” Goldcrest Films announced Tuesday.
Radcliffe stars as Washington Roebling, the brilliant but inexperienced engineer who manages the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge after the death of his father (Kingsley). Young Roebling becomes obsessed with completing his father’s design for the bridge, at the expense of his health and family, until he finds an ally in his own wife (Larson).
“This is a film that distributors are really excited about, ” said Pascal Degove, managing director of Goldcrest Films. “That this enthusiasm is shared by a highly commercial blend of acclaimed contemporary talent and acting royalty is really a testament to Doug’s script and his extraordinary strength as a filmmaker.”
