Author Topic: Mickey Rourke to play real life hitman Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski  (Read 1241 times)
« on: September 13, 2010, 03:06:30 PM »

Coming Soon reports that Mickey Rourke has signed on to play Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski who, for over 40 years, led a completely secretive double life as both a notorious professional assassin and a doting husband and father in suburban New Jersey in an adaptation of "The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer", Philip Carlo's account of the killers life. David McKenna (American History X, Blow) will pen the screenplay.

Natural Selection CEO Matty Beckerman announced today at the Toronto International Film Festival a deal for the company to fully finance and produce the feature. "Richard Kuklinski's life and Philip Carlo's true account, three years in the making, is fascinating and unlike any mafia story that's been brought to the big screen," says Beckerman. "This is a role Mickey Rourke was born to play and as a huge fan of David McKenna's work, I am thrilled to have him on board," says Beckerman.

Carlo said: "When I met Matty Beckerman, I immediately knew he was the producer to take the "Iceman" to the bigscreen. He immediately grasped the significance of a loving husband, caring father and a man who is a professional killer who travels around the world filling murder contracts at will, displaying an animal-like predatorial ability we've never seen before or since an excessively powerful man who could kill with his bare hands or a long list of weapons, his wife and family having no idea. As bad as Richard was, he hated rapists with a passion and he could never see a child abused and not do something."

I watched that entire interview a few months back, it's an amazing story and a fascinating character. It's all right there in the interview, very vivid.
