Michael Shannon goes in for the kill in new image from The Iceman
Michael Shannon is one of those actors who have been around for years but it seems that in just the year or so he’s become more of a household name. With superb performances in last year’s apocalyptic drama TAKE SHELTER along with a juicy role in the HBO series BOARDWALK EMPIRE it’s no wonder Michael Shannon has been landing roles in bigger films like PREMIUM RUSH, MAN OF STEEL and taking the lead role THE ICEMAN. If Michael Shannon can keep parts like this coming in, he may be headed for an Academy Award sooner rather than later.
THE ICEMAN is based on the true story of Richard Kuklinski, a hitman who worked for the mob and racked up over 200 kills while employed. Directed by Ariel Vroman, THE ICEMAN stars: Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer. THE ICEMAN is expected to be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall and will probably hit theaters sometime next year. (Playlist)
