McCallany and Pastore set to star in “Iron Terry Malone”

Creative Alley Productions, in association with All Things Creative and Brazen Giant Productions, have announced that actors Holt McCallany (“MindHunter”) and Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”) will headline the upcoming dark comedy “Iron Terry Malone”. The screenplay, based on true events, hails from award-winning actors/writers Christian Keiber and Robert John Keiber. The film will be directed by award-winning filmmaker Johnny Greenlaw (Mommys Box).

Utilizing many of the same locations used by Elia Kazans On The Waterfront (1954), the film is set largely in Hoboken, N.J., with the owner and five regulars teaming up to kill off one of their own to save their favorite bar from closing. McCallany, the acclaimed star of Netflixs ‘’Mindhunter’’, plays a local mobster named Mean Mike, who with the bars owner Harry Moffet, played by John Doman (The Wire), hatch the plan to off the town beggar and drunk “Iron” Terry Malone, played by Pastore.

Befriending Malone by getting him so drunk he cant think or remember where he is, the six would-be assassins first try poisoning him. Then, they try freezing him. Then, they run him over with a car, but Malone will just not die! And as summer turns to winter, things go from bad to worse, as this unlikely group of killers begins to turn on each other and find out just why their marked man is called “Iron” Terry Malone.

“What excites me about this film, besides the stellar cast, is the story and screenplay”, says Greenlaw. “The fact that it is based on actual events, that took place many years ago, we get to look inside the depths of humanity and what youre willing to sacrifice just to get by in life. I look forward to bringing this dark comedy to the big screen.”

In addition to McCallany, Pastore and Doman, the films superlative ensemble also includes, Christian Keiber (“Gotham’’), Bill Sorvino (Who’s Jenna..?”), Kerry McGann (“Bloodrunners’’), Johnny Greenlaw (“Mommys Box”), Robert John Keiber (Trust Me, Im a Lifeguard), Maureen Van Zandt (“The Sopranos’’), and Gary Pastore (“The Deuce’’). Sam Calagione, owner of Dogfish Head Brewery, the official beer sponsor of the film, will also appear in the movie.

“Iron” Terry Malone begins production in Hoboken, NJ in November.
