Dan has signed to star in Brooklyn Bridge, the story of Washington Roebling, the “brilliant but inexperienced engineer” who takes over construction of the Brooklyn bridge when his father dies. Roebling’s obsession with the project endangers his health and his family, until he finds an unlikely ally in the form of his wife.
Directed and scripted by Douglas McGrath and produced by Killer Films (responsible for Kill Your Darlings), Brooklyn Bridge is set to start filming this August, once Dan has finished the Broadway run of The Cripple of Inishmaan.
Dan took part in a table read for the film back in 2010, opposite actress Lily Rabe. As of yet, there is no other casting news, but it is expected to follow soon, as the film will be sold during next month’s European Film Market.
With Dan also attached to play Sebastian Coe in Gold and Jake Adelstein in Tokyo Vice, and his films Horns and The F Word due for release, 2014 is shaping up to be a very busy and exciting year indeed.
