Kevin Spacey became the topic for a variety of headlines over the last few years. Initially he faced a wide number of sexual assault allegations. At this time he was essentially blacklisted from Hollywood, hence why he hasn’t acted in years. However, he didn’t exactly leave the spotlight. The actor continued to make appearances – in a series of strange periodic videos. Nevertheless, it seems he’s now preparing to return to the acting scene. This time, however, Kevin Spacey will be acting in an Italian movie.
As revealed via ABC News, it looks like Kevin Spacey will be appearing in a film titled “L’uomo Che Disegno Dio” which translates to “The Man Who Drew God.” As revealed by The Guardian, Spacey will play a police officer investigating the case of a man – played by the director, Franco Nero – who can draw people by listening to their voices, despite not being able to see and is wrongly accused of sexually abusing children. Franco Nero is the same man who famously portrayed the gunslinger Django in the 1966 spaghetti western of the same name. And it turns out he’s actually very happy to be working with Kevin Spacey.
Here’s what Franco Nero specifically said about working with Spacey:
“I’m very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film.” He added, “I consider him a great actor and I can’t wait to start the movie.”
Here’s the plot of the new film:
“The rise and fall of a blind artist who has the extraordinary gift of making true-to-life portraits just by listening to human voices, and of becoming a TV-junk star. A fable on the need to rediscover the miraculous power of dignity in a world where media’s noise has solved the problem of man’s imperfection simply by removing the problem itself.”
Aside from controversial actor Kevin Spacey, the movie stars Franco Nero as the main protagonist. His wife, Vanessa Redgrave, is also attached to star. The rest of the cast includes Robert Davi, Stefania Rocca, Massimo Ranieri, Vittorio Boscolo, Alessia Alciati, Simona Nasi and Diana Dell’Erba.
