Former House of Cards star Kevin Spacey is set to return to film, Variety reports.
Just a few weeks ago, Spacey got the news that he would face more sexual assault allegations in the UK. He also won a $40 million lawsuit regarding some of those charges.
The new independent film is called Control, written by Gene Fallaize. According to Variety, the film “tells the story of a British government minister, Stella Simmons, who has embarked on a torrid affair with the Prime Minister. One night, as Simmons heads home in her self-driving car, she finds the vehicle remotely hijacked by someone who knows her secret and wants revenge. Soon, the car is taken on a rampage through the streets of London with Simmons trapped inside.”
“He’s one of the greatest actors of our generation,” Fallaize told Variety. “His personal life aside — it’s something I can’t comment on and have no knowledge of — it’s an opportunity to work with one of the acting greats.”
