Kevin Spacey to star in new film after sex misconduct scandal

Kevin filmed his scenes back in 2015

It appears that disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is returning to the big screen after he was accused by fifteen men of sexual harassment, assault or attempted rape, Vogue is reporting.

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

He will play Ron Levin, a con artist who masterminded a Ponzi scheme in 1980s Los Angeles.

Australia keeps China out of internet cabling for Pacific neighbour
A Huawei spokesman told Reuters it was never informed of any security problems with its planned cables for the Solomons. Australia has formally agreed to a deal to help build a 4,000km (2,500 mile) internet cable to the Solomon Islands .

Vertical Entertainment, the company distributing the film, has been contacted for comment.

The film was shelved after actor Anthony Rapp accused the Oscar victor of making unwanted sexual advances towards him in the 1980s, when he was 14, in an online expose previous year. In two separate statements, Spacey said first that he did not recall the incident with Rapp, and later that he was "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

When the allegations against Spacey emerged, Netflix chose to remove him from the final season of House Of Cards while director Ridley Scott cut him from All The Money In The World, which had already finished filming. Just last fall, Ridley Scott chose to re-shoot 400 scenes in his movie All the Money in the World to replace the publicly toxic Spacey with Christopher Plummer (Plummer would receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the role). According to editors at NBC, it is now under review by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office's Sex Crimes Task Force.
