Another Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski Biopic in the Works

Posted: October 1st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Another Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski Biopic in the WorksSubmit Comment
Mickey Rourke is currently set to star as hitman Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski in "The Ice Man," and upcoming film based on Philip Carlo's "The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer" book which is being adapted by David McKenna (American History X, Blow).

Everything is progressing nicely, but the project just got some competition from director Ariel Vromen (Danika) who is working on "The Iceman" movie, which is also a Kuklinski biopic but is based on Anthony Bruno's "The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer" book.

And to make it more of a competition, Vromen just signed James Franco, Michael Shannon, and Benicio Del Toro. Shannon will play the lead role.

Summary of the book: Richard Kuklinsky, son of a brutal, alcoholic father who came home only infrequently and a mother who vented her resentment on her children, grew up to be an efficient mass murderer. By the time of his trial in 1988 at age 53 he had killed upwards of 100 men by shooting, stabbing, choking or poisoning them. Kuklinsky, a New Jersey family man with two daughters and a son, was finally brought to justice through the efforts of Special Agent Dominick Polifrone of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, working with the New Jersey Attorney General's Office and the New Jersey State Police.

Question: Which version would you rather see, Mickey Rourke's "The Ice Man" or Shannon's "The Iceman"?

With all due respect for Shannon, but I would prefer Rourke's Kuklinski.

I have read both books and Carlos was better. Also, Rourke could probably play him better. He was one f*cked up individual. As for Polifrone being the guy who brought him down, he would probably still be out killing if it werent for Detective Pat Kane with the NJ State Police. Polifrone was huge but Kane brought him into the fold. No one even beleived Kane initially! I will probably watch both movies though.

The problem with Rourke is he is giving up 6 inches to the IceMan where Shannon is only losing two. The size of the IceMan was an integral part of what he did and how he was perceived. One of his nicknames was "The Big Guy". The guy once threw a marble dining room table out a window. The table took six guys to move into his house and he tossed it alone!

I wish Franco and Del Toro were in Rourkes and McKenna's.

@ lawman

I have to agree. Carlo's book was much better. I always thought it would make a great film.

I still say this had James Gandolfini's name written all over it. I love Rourke, but Tony Soprano was born to play The Iceman.

None! Hollywood stop the glorification of insects like him, well, calling that guy an insect is insulting insects, they bring more value to this world than this guy.. These people should only be mencioned in clinical studies, and should be scrapped from history, better saying, should be in history as a bad example, but unamed..

@Ippinto: It's not about glorification, but it's an interesting life. How come a man turn into such a monster? Or do you think "Downfall" was glorifying Hitler?
