UPDATE: We've been informed that this was only a Test Scene and that it was not officially released. In fact, the movie has not even gone into production and it is unclear when or if it will.
Director Ariel Vromen's potential drama-thriller The Iceman is based on the book The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer by Anthony Bruno and the documentary The Iceman Tapes: Conversations with a Killer by Jim Thebaut, and documents the life of Richard Kuklinski, a contract killer for the Gambino crime family who committed his first murder in his early teens and claimed to have killed more than 250 people during his life.
Earlier this week, a clip and poster were released, purportedly from the studio. They were strong enough to get fans excited... but turns out the excitement was simply a case of false hope.
Here's an earlier synopsis of the movie provided by Millenium:
The Iceman is the electrifying true story of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a notorious mob contract killer and loving family man. He earned his nickname by freezing the bodies of his victims, disguising the time of death, and throwing police off-track. He was a man who used his tendencies toward violence and detachment from consequence to create an idyllic family life. His family and neighbors believed he was an average businessman, having no idea about his deadly alternate life. Kuklinski killed over one hundred people during his life. He never felt remorse for anything he had done, except hurting his family.
