Following its out-of-competition premiere at the Venice Film Festival (to lukewarm response), Millenium Films has released the debut trailer for Ariel Vromen's The Iceman, starring Michael Shannon as real-life hitman Richard Kuklinski -- known as "The Iceman" for freezing the bodies of his victims to disguise their time of death. Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, David Schwimmer, James Franco, and Stephen Dorff also star. Fun fact: James Franco was originally slated to play Robert Pronge in The Iceman, but dropped out for contractual issues and was replaced by Chris Evans. Franco still makes an appearance, however, in a "grimly brief cameo." Embed and synopsis below.
The Iceman is the true story of Richard Kuklinski: loving husband, devoted father, ruthless killer. He is believed to have killed more than 250 people between 1954 and 1985.
