Directed by Ariel Vromen and starring Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) as real world mob hitman Richard Kuklinski, the film is based closely on the tell-all book The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer by Anthony Bruno.
The Iceman is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a notorious mob contract killer and loving family man who was reportedly responsible for over 200 murders. He earned his nickname 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.
Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Winona Ryder & Ray Liotta star in THE ICEMAN, the forthcoming crime-thriller from Millennium Films and Bleiberg Entertainment. Ariel Vromen (Danika, Rx) is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Morgan Land (Rx, The Point of No Return), based on the book The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer by Anthony Bruno and on interview footage from the documentary The Iceman Tapes: Conversations with a Killer by Jim Thebaut.
