David Schwimmer to play contract killer in The Iceman

Friendly no more...

Variety reports that his next project will see him star in The Iceman , Ariel Vromen’s indie drama that follows Michael Shannon (General Zod in upcoming Superman flick Man Of Steel ) as the titular mafia hit man, Richard Kuklinski, who murdered over 200 people.

Since its announcement, both Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ray Liotta have jumped on board, with James Franco leaving the project for unknown reasons.

Schwimmer, who directed Run, Fatboy, Run and did voice-work in Madagascar , will play Jack Rosenthal - a contract killer who works for Liotta’s mob boss.

Can't imagine him going for coffee with mates in Central Perk, can you?

The Iceman hits cinemas in 2013.
