The Icemandirector Ariel Vromen and Millennium Films are re-teaming on military thriller “Criminal.”

Israel native Vromen’s “Iceman,” is the true story of mob killer Richard Kuklinski and stars Michael Shannon. Vromen co-wrote with Morgan Land and is based on Anthony Bruno’s book “The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer” and interview footage.

Cook and Weisberg are also teamed with Benderspink and Lorenzo di Bonaventura on a pair of projects at Lionsgate — “The Money Plane” and an untitled female spy movie. Vromen is repped by CAA.
