First Look At Ariel Vromen's 'The Iceman'

First look at Ariel Vromen's film about the life of notorious hitman and serial killer Richard Kuklinski 'The Iceman.' The film stars Michael Shannon Benicio Del Toro Elias Koteas, and James Franco.

'The Iceman' is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, “Revolutionary Road”), notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nick-name 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.

'Iceman' is set to premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival with a theatrical release set for Autumn.
