Chris Evans Finds 'The Iceman' and Amber Heard Goes to 'Motor City'

November 21, 2011

Amber Heard / Chris Evans

Here's a couple casting updates for projects moving through development. First up, Deadline reports Captain America himself Chris Evans has taken a more villainous role in The Iceman, the thriller from director Ariel Vromen which follows Michael Shannon as the titular killer, Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who murdered more than 200 people. Evans is actually replacing departed talent James Franco as Kuklinski's mentor Robert Pronge. This will be a darker turn for Evans who traditionally has taken the hero or romantic lead role in films over the years, so it should be a performance to keep an eye on.

In addition, Deadline also has word that Amber Heard has snagged the lead female role opposite Dominic Cooper in Motor City, the Black Listed thriller from Albert Hughes, one-half of the sibling directing duo that also includes Allen Hughes. This will be Albert's first solo directing gig with the story of a man released from prison who goes on a revenge mission, hunting down the people who framed him. The script is well known around town for containing only one line of dialogue, but it's not clear if that staple trait has made it this far into development. I'm betting that Heard will still be, well, heard, in some capacity.

The Iceman interviews were great. It will be great to see Evans and Shannon play off each other.
