Chris Evans could be taking a dark turn in The Iceman.

The Captain America: The First Avenger star is rumoured to be in talks to take the role of mentor assassin Robert Pronge - aka Mr Softee - in the gripping thriller, which James Franco was previously linked to, reported Deadline.

Michael Shannon is set to star as notorious professional hitman Richard Kulinski in Ariel Vromen's movie adaptation, based on Anthony Bruno's book The Iceman: The True Story Of A Cold-Blooded Killer and interview footage from The Iceman Tapes: Conversations With A Killer documentary.

David Schwimmer has been cast as killer Josh Rosenthal and Ray Liotta is on board as mob boss Roy Demoe, while Maggie Gyllenhaal plays Kulinski's unsuspecting wife.

Production is set to begin in December.
