"Kill the Irishman" is a feature film that details the turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) and the Italian mafia after thirty-six bombs detonate in the heart of Cleveland in the summer of 1976. Based on a true story, "Kill the Irishman" chronicles Greene's heroic rise from a tough Cleveland neighborhood to become an enforcer in the local mob. Turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken) and allying himself with gangster John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio), Greene stops taking orders from the mafia and pursues his own power. Surviving countless assassination attempts from the mob and killing off anyone who went after him in retaliation, 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.

Anchor Bay Films' "Kill the Irishman" is written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh and also stars Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini. The movie is inspired by Rick Porrello's true crime account "To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia."
