Kevin Spacey to appear in Franco Nero’s Italian film (reports) – The Hollywood Reporter
Kevin Spacey will appear in his first film following his allegations of sexual assault and misconduct.
ABC News reported that the actor will appear in the Italian film L’uomo Che Disegno Dio, translated by The man who drew God. The film will be directed by Franco Nero and will shoot in Italy. ABC reports that Vanessa Redgrave will also star in the film.
“I am very happy that Kevin has agreed to participate in my film”, Nero told ABC News. “I consider him a great actor and can’t wait to start the movie.”
Spacey, Nero and Redgrave did not respond to Hollywood journalistrequest for comment from.
The movie is described on IMDB to focus on “the rise and fall of a blind artist”.
The next film will mark Spacey’s first role in more than four years after facing multiple allegations of sexual assault and misconduct in 2017. Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp told a Buzzfeed reporter in 2017 that Spacey made a pass to him when he was only 14 years old. Spacey continued to share a statement of apology to Rapp via Twitter and used his statement to impersonate a gay man for the first time. Spacey then faced more allegations after 20 young men alleged sexual misconduct by the Old Vic theater actor in London which took place between 1995 and 2013 – Spacey was its artistic director from 2004 to 2015. Spacey was then charged with indecent assault following an incident involving a teenager from Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, to which he pleaded not guilty. The assault and battery trial was ultimately dropped.
Amid allegations, Spacey has split from Netflix Card castle. He last appeared in the 2018 film Billionaire Boys Club.
Since being at the center of the allegations, Spacey has remained out of public view, only making public statements via an annual Christmas Eve video he posts on YouTube and Twitter. He last posted a COVID 2020 episode, in which he offered his support to those struggling.
