Actor Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in his next film titled, “Brooklyn Bridge.” Radcliffe will play Washington Roebling, the engineer who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge, according to Fox News reports on Jan. 22.

Roebling, a civil engineer of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) – located in Troy, N.Y. – attended the Victorian inspired college town from 1854 – 1857; his father, John Roebling, designed the two towers of the iconic bridge.

The American civil engineer’s father, John Roebling came down with tetanus after a foot accident during the bridge’s construction; he unfortunately died of lockjaw.

The RPI graduate narrowly avoided the fate of his father when he contracted the bends during construction underwater, however, survived to see the completion of the project; young Roebling died at the ripe age of 89.

The construction of the New York bridge had its trajectory altered when it over budgeted to $15 million and it took 14 years to build.

The film will be directed by Douglas McGrath along with duo producers, Christine Vachon and Rose Ganguzza.

The “Brooklyn Bridge” is set to film in August with the rest of the names of casting roles yet to be announced.
