Over the summer of 1976, thirty-six bombs were detonated in the heart of Cleveland as a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) and the Italian mafia. After turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken) and joining forces with gangster John Nardi (Vincent D’Onofrio), Greene cuts his ties to the Mafia, and begins moving in on their turf. Surviving countless assassination attempts and killing off anyone who goes after him, Danny Greene’s infamous invincibility and notorious fearlessness eventually led to the collapse of mafia syndicates across the U.S. and also earned him the status of the man the mob couldn’t kill. Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh and also starring Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini, Kill the Irishman is inspired by Rick Porrello’s true crime account To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia.
