Anchor Bay has released a trailer and poster for a crime thriller Kill the Irishman.
Based on a true story, the film centers on Irish mobster Danny Greene.
The movie has really great cast like Ray Stevenson who plays Danny Greene, Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio, Paul Sorvino, Steven R. Schirripa, Robert Davi and Laura Ramsey.
Here’s the Kill the Irishman synopsis:
Over the summer of 1976, thirty-six bombs detonate in the heart of Cleveland while a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene and the Italian mafia. Turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns and allying himself with gangster John Nardi, Greene stops taking orders from the mafia and pursues his own power.
Surviving countless assassination attempts from the mob and killing off anyone who went after him in retaliation, Danny Greene’s infamous invincibility and notorious fearlessness eventually led to the collapse of mafia syndicates across the U.S. and also earned him the status of the man the mob couldn’t kill.
Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, the movie is inspired by Rick Porello’s true crime book To Kill The Irishman: The War That Crippled The Mafia.
Kill the Irishman opens limited on March 11, 2011.
