Kevin Spacey Returns To Spotlight In Trailer For First Film Since Abuse Allegations

‘Billionaire Boys Club’ will be released in July.

The trailer for ‘Billionaire Boys Club’, which features Kevin Spacey’s return to the spotlight, has been revealed, ahead of the movie’s July release.

Spacey has been out of the limelight since multiple men accused him of sexual harassment back in November 2017.

At the time, his then-publicist said Spacey was seeking “evaluation and treatment” and the actor released a statement, which drew criticism for his decision to use the opportunity to come out as gay.

While its release is imminent, ‘Billionaire Boys Club’ was filmed three years ago, with production wrapping in January 2016.

The movie tells a true story, and sees Kevin play Ron Levin, a con artist who convinces a group of young men to create a ponzi scheme.

‘Billionaire Boys Club’ reunites Spacey with his ‘Baby Driver’ co-star Ansel Elgort and also stars Emma Roberts, Taron Egerton and Jeremy Irvine.

Following the harassment allegations, Spacey was fired with immediate effect from ‘House Of Cards’ and Robin Wright will be the drama’s sole lead when series six arrives later this year.

When the first news reports were published, Kevin had recently completed work on the Ridley Scott film ‘All The Money In The World’ but did not make the final cut.

Rather than releasing the film with Spacey in such a significant role (he played pivotal character J. Paul Getty), Scott decided to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes with Christopher Plummer replacing him as the billionaire.
