Shannon, Del Toro, Franco Hit On “Ice Man”

Michael Shannon, Benicio Del Toro, & James Franco are attached to star in “Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer” for Natural Selection says Production Weekly.

Based on the true story of Richard “The Ice Man” Kuklinski, a man who for more than 40 years led a double life as both a professional assassin and a doting husband and father in suburban New Jersey. Mickey Rourke was linked to the project earlier this month.

David McKenna (“Blow,” “American History X”) adapted the script from the book by Philip Carlo. Ariel Vroman will direct while Matty Beckerman will produce.
