Kill the Irishman (2011), Produced By Scranton Native Eugene Musso, Opens at Cinemark; On DVD and Blu Ray June 14th

Monday's Times-Tribune (April 25, 2011, page C1) featured an article written by Josh McAuliffe titled "Scranton Native's New Film 'Kill the Irishman; Opens Friday at Cinemark". The article features an interview with Scranton native and part-time Lake Wallenpaupack resident Eugene Musso, who served as one of the producers of the film.

Based on the book To Kill an Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia by Rick Porrello, Kill the Irishman tells the story of Danny Greene's (Ray Stevenson) battle to break the Italian stranglehold on organized crime in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1970s. The film co-stars Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Paul Sorvino.

Eugene Musso's previous production credits include the 2000 comedy Drowning Mona (with Bette Midler) and the 2006 critically-acclaimed horror film Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.
