Chris Evans is set to replace James Franco in an upcoming film about notorious killer Richard 'THE ICEMAN' KUKLINSKI.
Milk star Franco pulled out of The Iceman due to a disagreement over "key contractual issues", but now Evans has stepped in to take the role as Kuklinski's mentor.
Kuklinski, to be portrayed by Michael Shannon, was a contract killer for the Mafia.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer have also signed on for the film, which is set for a theatrical release in 2013.
