“The Iceman is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon), notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nick-name by freezing the bodies of his victims, disguising the time of death and throwing police off-track. He was a man who used his tendencies toward violence and detachment from consequence to create an idyllic family life. His family and neighbors believed he was an average businessman, having no idea about his deadly alternate life. Kuklinski killed over one hundred people during his life. He never felt remorse for anything he had done, except hurting his family.”
Directed by Ariel Vromen, the cast includes Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, James Franco, Ray Liotta, and Chris Evans. The film should be released in theaters sometime in 2013.
