Kevin Spacey To Make Acting Comeback

Kevin Spacey is to star in a historical drama which will be made available at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

The film titled 1242  – Getaway To The West, is directed by Hungarian filmmaker Peter Soos, while Aron Horvath and Joan Lane will write the script. The drama will also star Eric Roberys, Terence Stamp and Christopher Lambert. 

This will also represent the first major acting role for Kevin Spacey since the allegations of sexual abuse and harrassment were made public in 2017.

Kevin Spacey was subsequently removed from Netflix drama 'House of Cards'. He was also replaced by Christian Plummer in Ridley Scott's 'All The Money In The World'

Spacey had been accused of groping by actor Anthony Rapp in 1986. 

Earlier this week, Tina Fey also claimed that Spacey "hit on her", during her Saturday Night Live days. 

“This is the kind of weird thing that used to happen to me”, she said. “One time when he was hosting SNL, at the after-party, it was late and Kevin Spacey tried to hit on me”. 

Fey also questioned Spacey’s motives, “I was like, ‘Who is this for? Who is this little performance for?’”.
