Actress Winona Ryder was just cast in a new indie film called The Iceman, in which she will star alongside Michael Shannon, Benico Del Toro, and Chris Evans. The film is being directed by Ariel Vromen and it's based on the book written by Anthony Bruno, which tells the story Richard Kuklinski, a family man who secretly carried out contract killings for the mob. The film looks awesomely intense, you can check out a clip that was shot right here.
Since Ryder has been cast in the film I thought I'd take the opportunity to list my top 5 favorite films that the actress has been in.
Beetlejuice - this is just a great classic Tim Burton movie that I absolutely love. It's also the film that put Ryder on the road to stardom.
Girl Interrupted - Even though Angelina Jolie stole the show in this film, Ryder gave a very powerful performance. This really was a great film, and if you haven't seen it yet you should check it out.
Alien: Resuraction - It was nice to see Ryder take on the role of a badass in this fun sci-fi film that should have been a hell of a lot better.
The Crucible - Ryder was simply awesome in this movie, I definitley think this was one of her best film roles to date.
Reality Bites - This was just a solidly good 90's film, and Ryder gave a great performance.
