This St. Patrick's Day weekend, Anchor Bay Films will be re-releasing "Kill the Irishman", the story of the rise and fall of Cleveland's own Irish mobster Danny Greene. Starring Ray Stevenson, Val Kilmer, and Christopher Walken, the film will be shown from March 15 to March 18 at the Cinemark in Valley View in celebration of the Irish holiday.
Inspired by Rick Porello's "To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia", the film also stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Linda Cardellini, and Paul Sorvino.
Based on a true story, Kill the Irishman chronicles the rise of Danny Greene from a tough Cleveland neighborhood to becoming an enforcer in the local mob. Allying himself with John Nardi and turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns, Greene decides to stop taking orders from the mafia and goes after his own power. Amazingly, Greene survives countless attempts on his life by the mob, and kills off anyone who went after him. Greene's numerous escapes from death and fearlessness earned him the status of the man that the mob couldn't kill, and eventually led to the collapse of the mafia syndicates across the United States.
