Michael Shannon Means Business on the First Poster for 'The Iceman'
Though news on the project hadn't been heard since 2010, late last year, The Iceman got some new cast members in the form of David Schwimmer, Maggie Gyllenhaal (now replaced by Winona Ryder) and Ray Liotta. The film follows Michael Shannon as the titular killer, Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who murdered more than 200 people, including at least 50 vagrants before he was 18 years old. His nickname stems from the fact that he sometimes froze corpses to disguise the time of death. Now we have our first look at Shannon in the film thanks to the first poster from Cinema Teaser (via The Playlist). Look!
Ariel Vroman directed The Iceman and also wrote the script with Morgan Land based on Anthony Bruno's biography The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer. Michael Shannon plays the titular serial killer who murdered more than 200 people while Ray Liotta, Chris Evans, David Schwimmer and Winona Ryder round out the supporting cast. It's not clear when the film is expected to hit theaters so stay tuned.
