James Franco Leaves ‘The Iceman’

Collider are reporting that Oscar Nominee Sleepy Eyes James Franco has dropped out of ‘The Iceman’ – the biopic based on the biography “The Iceman: The True Story Of A Cold Blooded Killer” based on the life of Richard ‘The Iceman’ Kuklinski. Man that was a mouthful.

Franco is currently working on Oz: The Great And Powerful, Sam Raimi’s Wizard Of Oz prequel, and Just Jared is citing that contractual issues have caused his departure from the project. Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) and Benecio Del Toro (The Wolfman) are still attached to the film which is due to commence shooting in December.
