A Time for Killers

Trend Alert!

Serial killers movies seem to be hottest thing these days: Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) is going to play Charles Manson, while both Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney are set to portray very bad guys in two separate projects.

And now, Revolutionary Road Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon (pictured here), Benicio Del Toro, and James Franco will star in The Iceman, the true story of Richard Kuklinski, a notorious mob contract killer and loving family man who earned his nickname by freezing the bodies of his victims, disguising the time of death, and throwing police off-track.

Del Toro will play the guy’s employer, the notorious mobster Roy Demeo, while Franco will take on the role of his mentor assassin known as Mr. Softee.
