It has been a LONG haul. Twenty years to be exact. I started researching and writing THE ICEMAN, the story of killer Richard Kuklinski, back in 1992. It was published in hardcover and paperback in the US, then in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan. Like most books, its popularity petered out after a few years, but I did my best to keep it in print, even offering it to a publisher for free once (they said yes, then changed their minds–their loss). One way or another I managed to keep it alive. Thank God. Director Ariel Vromen discovered it online a few years back, and to make a long story short, it’s now a major motion picture, starring Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, Chris Evans, James Franco, and David Schwimmer. The film will be released sometime in 2013, but the trailer is available now. Take a look.
Congratulations! “The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer” is one of the best biografics books I ever read. I haven’t seen the movie the teamwork between Shannon and Evans looks brilliant. Does it exist any real pictures of Robert Pronge? Take care and I hope to see more of your work in the future!
Thank you for your answer!
