    Christopher Walken is set to star in The Irishman, a crime drama for Code Entertainment. The story is based on the life of mobster Danny Greene, who will be played by Ray Stevenson. The real-life Greene was a violent Irish-American gangster who went toe to toe with the Italian mafia in 1970s Cleveland. His actions lead to a nationwide battle between different factions of the mafia over territory.

    Walken will portray a loan shark and nightclub owner named Shondor Birns. Val Kilmer is taking the role of a Cleveland police detective who becomes a friend of Greene's. The film begins shooting May 19 in Detroit.
