Chris Evans replacing James Franco in ‘Iceman’
London: Chris Evans is all set to replace James Franco in an upcoming film based on notorious killer Richard ‘The Iceman’ Kuklinski.
Earlier, Milk star Franco had to pull out of ‘The Iceman’ due to disagreement over ‘key contractual issues’, but now Evans has stepped in to take the role as the mentor of Kuklinski’s.
Kuklinski, to be portrayed by Michael Shannon, was a contract killer for the Mafia.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer have also signed on for the film, which is set for a theatrical release in 2013.
