So, our favourite friend is now a killer? Hm, ok. David Schwimmer, guy probably best known as Ross Geller from Friends is now on board to star in the upcoming mob-centric indie The Iceman. This project comes from director Ariel Vromen and already stars Michael Shannon, Ray Liotta, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ryan O’Nan. Good cast, but I’m still confused about the latest news. What the hell Schwimmer has to do with this role? And that role, for those of you who still have no idea what I’m talking about, is character named Josh Rosenthal, a killer who works for mob boss Roy Demeo (Ray Liotta). Rosenthal looks at Demeo as a father figure and will do almost anything to impress him. See? That’s quite…well let’s say interesting but still very strange choice, probably because once upon a time James Franco and Benicio Del Toro were attached to this project. As for the rest of the cast, Michael Shannon stars as the titular killer, Richard ‘The Ice Man’ Kuklinski, a mafia hit man who murdered more than 200 people. Maggie Gyllenhaal is attached to play his wife, while Ryan O’Nan is on board to star as a young hustler who gets caught up in the protag’s web of murder and deception. Ariel Vromen and Morgan Land co-wrote the script which is based on Anthony Bruno’s book The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer as well as interview footage. Production is scheduled to start in January in Louisiana.
