Frank Grillo Is “Last Don Standing”

Frank Grillo is being lined up to play Philadelphia Mob Boss Ralph Natale in “The Last Don Standing,” a film adaptation of the novel by New York Daily news reporter Larry McShane and producer Dan Pearson.

Natale was one of the only La Costra Nostra bosses to flip and become a federal witness and the book covers numerous topics including the murder of Bugsy Siegel, Jimmy Hoffa’s final days, the mob’s takeover of Atlantic City and the fixed boxing matches between Sonny Liston and Muhammad Ali.

Natale was the son of a numbers runner in Philly but in time became part of the upper echelon of the crime syndicate as one of the main men of notorious mob boss Angelo ‘The Gentle Don’ Bruno.
