Douglas McGrath is directing and Killer Films‘ Christine Vachon is producing Brooklyn Bridge, a period pic about the construction of the famous span that links Brooklyn to Manhattan. Daniel Radcliffe is attached to play Washington Roebling, the civil engineer son of the bridge’s original architect, John A. Roebling. When the younger Roebling is left to oversee the project, his obsession threatens his health and his family until he discovers he has an improbable ally in his charming and shrewd wife Emily. McGrath (Emma, Bullets Over Broadway) wrote the screenplay. London- and New York-based Goldcrest Films will finance, distribute and sell all international rights to the movie, kicking off sales at the European Film Market in Berlin next month. Rose Ganguzza is also producing and Goldcrest’s Nick Quested and Pascal Degove along with Jill Samuels are executive producers. Shooting is planned for August 2014.
