Between 1960 and 1990 hit man Richard Kuklinski allegedly killed over 100 people. Eventually he was caught, and although he died while serving two life sentences in a New Jersey prison, he described in great detail his deeds in a 1992 HBO documentary:

Now his story is set for the big screen, starring Michael Shannon as Kuklinski, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans and Ray Liotta.

Director Ariel Vromen joins the show to tell us more about the production and why he wanted to make this film.  

Vromen will appear for a special screening and Q&A of "The Iceman" tonight at the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood.
