As previously announced, “The Iceman” was also picked for Venice Festival. The line up was announced today.
ARIEL VROMEN – THE ICEMAN
Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, James Franco
The festival is held 29th August > 8th September 2012
It was just announced that “The Iceman” was selected for the Toronto International Film Festival during the press conference held earlier this morning. Variety had leaked a list before, but it’s now official.
Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon stars alongside a stellar supporting cast — including Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and Chris Evans — in the story of real-life mob hit-man Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, who was reportedly responsible for over 200 murders.
The festival is held September 6-16.
Well, it seems the confirmation wasn’t accurate, since Ashley is tweeting already about the movie. Unless Winona is doing another role – which wasn’t reported – the movie isn’t gonna happen for her.
Thanks Laura for the heads up!
I’ve been reading about this film for a while and we got some news today that Winona joined it.
The movie, which is being directed by Antoine Fuqua, begins shooting this week in Shreveport, La., with a cast that includes Gerry Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Cole Hauser, Radha Mitchell, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster and Rick Yune.
Butler is playing an unlikely Secret Service agent trying to stop Korean terrorists who have taken over the White House and take the president (Eckhart) hostage. Winona is reported to play the first lady. Forrester will play a high-ranking general who is forced to deal with the nuke-loving terrorists.
It seems Winona replaced Ashley Judd, who was going to do the First Lady part.
Thanks, as always, to Chris B for the heads up.
Finally “The Letter” trailer is now online, and you can watch it below:
Thanks to Michael D, Zerik and Chris B for the heads up!
According to director (and producer) Ariel Vromen, they had a test screening on the movie and it will just need a month to have the movie finished. He also announced the “The Iceman” got officially selected to both Venice film festival and Toronto Film Festival.
Sumatra Film official page has already a link to what may be an upcoming test scene/trailer for the movie. It’s directing us to a 404 page, but it worth checking it on weekly basis for some trailer news.
