London: `Harry Potter` star Daniel Radcliffe is all set to star in `Brooklyn Bridge`, written and directed by Douglas McGrath.

UK banner Goldcrest Films will finance, distribute and sell international rights of the movie which starts filming this August, reported Contactmusic.

"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," said Degove, managing director of Goldcrest Films.

The movie is inspired by true story and narrates story of a young engineer who is left to oversee the construction of Brooklyn Bridge after his father passes away.
