Sneak Peek At Detroit-Filmed “Kill The Irishman”

Anchor Bay Films has just released the trailer for the new movie “Kill The Irishman,” filmed in Detroit.

The movie won’t hit theaters until March 2011, but you can watch the trailer by clicking here.

“Kill The Irishman” is based on a true story and is inspried by Rick Porello’s true crime account “To Kill The Irishman: The War That Crippled The Mafia.”

Over the summer of 1976, 36 bombs detonate in the heart of Cleveland while a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene (portrayed by actor Ray Stevenson) and the Italian Mafia. “Kill The Irishman” chronicles Greene’s heroic rise from a tough Cleveland neighborhood to become an enforcer in the local mob. Eventually, Greene stops taking orders from the Mafia and pursues his own power.

Surviving countless assassination attempts from the mob and killing off anyone who went after him in retaliation, Greene’s infamous invincibility and notorious fearlessness eventually led to the collapse of Mafia syndicates across the U.S. and also earned him the status of the man the mob couldn’t kill.

“Kill The Irishman” was written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh and also stars Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini.
