Frank Grillo to Play Ralph Natale in Mob Movie ‘Last Don Standing’

Frank Grillo is attached to star in “Last Don Standing,” a biopic on Ralph Natale, the Philadelphia mob boss turned federal witness.

Dan Pearson is producing the pic.

Growing up linked to the local mob scene, Natale came up in the ranks before becoming the boss of the Philly mob. He was involved with everything from the death of Bugsy Siegel and Jimmy Hoffa, to the influence of the mob in Atlantic City, to the fixed fight between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston.

When faced with a life in prison sentence for racketeering, he would later flip and become the only known boss to turn federal witness.

This year, Grillo starred in “The Purge: Anarchy,” the highest-grossing film in the “Purge” franchise, and reprised his role of Crossbones in “Captain America: Civil War.” He is currently filming Season 3 of his Audience TV series “Kingdom” and just wrapped production on the Netflix thriller “Wheelman.”

He is repped by CAA and Management 360. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
