The son of Libya strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi, Al-Saadi Gaddafi, is financing a film about the Mafia as part of his Hollywood investment business.

Bloomberg reported that Al-Saadi, a one-time footballer suspended by the Italian Olympic league in 2003 for steroid use, invested in a $100 million Los Angeles-based film production fund called Natural Selection, founded by Matty Beckerman.

The film is called “The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer,” slated to star Mickey Rourke and Eva Amurri, the daughter of Susan Sarandon.  The film focuses on Richard Kuklinski, a brutal and sadistic killer and torturer, involved in pornography, narcotics, contract killing, and gambling on a worldwide scale. 

Bloomberg News does not believe that the crisis in Libya will sway other potential investors as Al-Saadi has maintained a relatively low profile when compared to his other brother Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.

“I really don’t have a comment on this,” Natural Selection’s founder Beckerman said yesterday. 

Libya is currently undergoing an uprising that has left hundreds killed.

Muammar al-Gaddafi vowed to fight the rebellion until his “last drop of blood”.
