After enjoying some time on stage, Daniel Radcliffe is returning to the big screen in a new film called "Brooklyn Bridge."

Based on the story of the construction of the bridge, the movie follows young engineer Washington Roebling who is tasked with overseeing work on the project when his father dies.

Scheduled to being filming in August, the drama still has yet to cast the lead actress and supporting actors.

Speaking about the choice, managing director of Goldcrest Films Pascal Degove gushed, "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.”
