Watch: Michael Shannon is One Ruthless Killer in 'The Iceman' Trailer
Though news on the project hadn't been heard since 2010, late last year, The Iceman got an official poster with Michael Shannon as the titular killer, Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who murdered at least 100 people, including at least 50 vagrants before he was 18 years old. Ray Liotta, Chris Evans (looking really disheveled and creepy), David Schwimmer and Winona Ryder co-star in the film which will premiere next month at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, so stay tuned for our coverage. In the meantime, the first trailer has been released ahead of the film's festival premiere. Watch!
