James Franco Departs ‘The Iceman’

Michael Shannon was set to play Richard Kuklinski, and James Franco would have played his serial-killing protege, Robert "Mr. Softee" Pronge. If this project stays afloat, Ariel Vronman will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Morgan Land. The script is adapted from Anthony Bruno's book, The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer, and is also based on footage from the HBO documentary The Iceman Interviews.
