Posted Wed Jun 12, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The chilling story of mob hitman Richard Kuklinski will leave a trail of bodies on Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Millennium is preparing 'The Iceman' for Blu-ray on September 3.

Inspired by actual events, 'The Iceman' follows notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski (Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon) from his early days in the mob until his arrest for the murder of more than 100 men. Appearing to be living the American dream as a devoted husband and father; in reality Kuklinski was a ruthless killer-for-hire. When finally arrested in 1986, neither his wife nor daughters have any clue about his real profession.

Co-starring Academy Award® nominee Winona Ryder ('Black Swan') and Chris Evans ('Avengers,' 'Captain America'), 'The Iceman' is directed by Ariel Vromen ('Danika') from a script he wrote with Morgan Land ('Rx'). Ray Liotta ('Goodfellas'), David Schwimmer ('Friends'), Robert Davi ('Profiler') and Danny Abeckaser ('Alpha Dog') round out the cast. The film features cameo appearances by Stephen Dorff ('Public Enemies') and James Franco ('127 Hours').

Specs and supplements have not been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
