Based on the true story of Danny Greene, the man the mob couldn't kill.
In 1976 thirty-six bombs detonated across Cleveland as a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Green (Ray Stevenson) and the Cosa Nostra.
Based on true events, this "explosive crime story with unforgettably gritty characters" - Marshall Fine Huffington Post chronicles Greene's legendary rise from local trouble-maker to top mob enf-rcer. Turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken) and joining f-rces with gangster John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio), Greene cut his ties to the Mafia, and began moving in on their turf. Surviving countless assassination attempts, Greene's infamous fearlessness and brutality eventually led to the collapse of mafia syndicates across the U.S. and earned him the status as the one man the mob couldn't kill. Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, Kill the Irishman also stars Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini.
