Trailer drops for Kevin Spacey’s new film where he plays gay billionaire

Kevin Spacey in Billionaire Boys Club

The trailer has been revealed for Kevin Spacey’s first film since he was accused last year of historic sexual assault by multiple men.

The actor, who has won two Oscars, will play a gay man in the upcoming drama Billionaire Boys Club.

Spacey lost his job on the Netflix original series House of Cards last October after the row. It started after actor Anthony Rapp alleged Spacey made a sexual advance towards him when he was 14 in 1986.

In a much-criticized response and apology, Spacey came out as a gay man.

Rapp’s allegations led to several other men coming forward with similar claims about Spacey.

The plot of Billionaire Boys Club revolves around a group of wealthy young men in 80s LA who explore group con artistry. It is based on a true story.

The movie will costar Ansel Elgort. The 240year-old rising star is of course famed for his role in romantic teen drama The Fault In Our Stars.

American Horror Story’s Emma Roberts also appears, as does War Horse’s Jeremy Irvine.

Furthermore, English actor Cary Elwes will make an appearance playing openly gay pop artist Andy Warhol.

‘I’m from Wall Street. Do you really think people get rich playing by the rules?’

In the trailer, Spacey’s character Ron Levin can be seen imparting get-rich-quick advice to the group, known as the BBC, saying: ‘I’m from Wall Street. Do you really think people get rich playing by the rules?’

Billionaire Boys Club will be released in the US on 17 August. It will be directed by John Cox.

Filming began in December 2015, before the allegations against Spacey were made. Filming wrapped in January 2016, with reshoots occurring the same year.

The producers’ decision not to axe Spacey follow his being dropped from last year’s All The Money In The World. Spacey is not believed to have any further upcoming films projects.
